President Obama and Congress Not Making the Grade Survey Finds
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is getting grilled again on Capitol Hill today–and by the public with questions on Twitter.

Obamacare, it looks like problems with the roll out of the website–and subsequent developments related to it–are seriously compromising the reputations of those on Capitol Hill.
A new Associated Press-GfK poll finds that nearly two-thirds of Americans surveyed, would like to see their House member out of a job. In previous polls, they felt Congress as a whole wasn’t doing a good job, but “their” Representative was. This survey is in sharp contrast to earlier feelings.

The survey, by the way, also asked about immigration reform and found most favor a pathway to legal status for those living here illegally.
many of the questions were submitted onto Twitter. Congress wanting to know what average citizens think about the botched roll out of the healthcare website.
