Most productive Congress in nearly 50 years gets no respect from voters

WASHINGTON – The public panned it. Republicans obstructed it. Many Democrats fled from it. Even so, the session of Congress now drawing to a close was the most productive in nearly half a century.

Not since the explosive years of the civil rights movement and the hard-fought debut of government-supported health care for the elderly and poor have so many big things – love them or hate them – been done so quickly.

Why do they get no respect?
Foxpublicans and their echo chamber repeat lies constantly.

And “liberal media” enables them, by trying to be fair to “both sides”.
Example – they bring in a crackpot to argue against a democrat.
By the time they are done, the crackpot makes the regular silly republican argument seem reasonable by comparison, when its far from that.

So when the nightly news is showing 10-20 second clips, its hard to tell who’s lying.
But we’ve been inundated with false “massive spending” complaints over the last two years and that has an effect on the low information voters.
