In response to MattyScornD's comment:
And congress was re-elected at their usual ~90% clip...due in part to their local electoral advantages...despite overall postive approval (and re-election) of POTUS.
But don't say it's because people want congress to be a check on the executive, because: 1) they approve of congress much, much less, 2) they want things to get done and obstructionism to end, and 3) people aren't that sophisticated about political fights, hearing only the garbage spewed out by the broadcast media.
POTUS has a huge advantage as the incumbant too.
Regardless of what anyone thinks; the legislative branch is to provide "check" on the executive branch which creates a political "balance" in the two branches.
People on the left what left things to get done and the right to stop obstructing.
People on the right want right things to get done and the right to stop obstructing.
You are one of those "people" lol
And the executive is there to provide check on the moronic, perpetually-campaigning congress with its hair spray, sound bites and crazy notions attributable to their crazy constitutents.
Look, I would be fine with the repubs in the house getting something - anything - done that does not include personal attacks on and vows to impeach POTUS.
The unserious IRS hearings trying to link serious allegations of bureaucratic malfeasance on the Prez without ANY evidence whatsoever is just another empty boxcar on this train called a legislature.
With every new imagined slight to their delicate sensibilities, congress critters like Issa prove themselves more ridiculous than before. Some of them have quite clearly lost their minds, and other repubs are noticing.
