Washington D.C. Clearly Out of Touch
A recent Gallup poll asked Americans whether they felt the current economy was in good shape. All 50 states came back with a negative feeling of the economy, although some states were less pessimistic than others.
The only optimistic feeling toward the economy came from the people of Washington D.C., which proves just how out-of-touch the Inside-the-Beltway crowd is with the rest of the country.
It’s absolutely incredible that while the rest of the country has less than zero confidence in the economy, those in Washington D.C. are optimistic. They can claim they feel the pain, but according to this poll, it’s clear they have no idea.
Hopefully August recess allowed most Members of Congress to actually see what it’s like outside of the nation’s capital.
