Smith: Low Congressional approval rating not a surprise
Third District Congressman Adrian Smith says the low approval rating of Congress due to the current gridlock is not something that surprises him.
Smith told KNEB News that low approval ratings for those that serve us in Congress is not something new and dates back to the nation's founders. Smith says that if the 17% figure was reversed, "it would be of greater concern," although he admits 17% is low even for Congress.
Smith admits there are things that need to be done...... the first on the list passage of a Farm Bill. He says his colleagues in the House may by in a more compromising mood after their five week break. The current Farm Bill expires on September 30th.
