36% of Americans approve (and 53% disapprove) of the job that the Republican-controlled Congress is doing.

So what is Congress doing about this?  The lede paragraph of this AP report says it all:

The Republican-controlled Congress helped itself to a $3,100 pay raise on Friday, then postponed work on bills to curb spending on social programs and cut taxes in favor of a two-week vacation.

Apparently, they feel they are doing lousy because they’re not paid enough, and are overworked.
