    Majority of Americans polled say GOP is bad for country

    Uh oh...throw the bums out. Good riddance to treasonous rubbish.

    "Washington (CNN) -- Just more than half the public says that it's bad for the country that the GOP controls the House of Representatives, according to a new national poll conducted after the end of the partial government shutdown.
    And the CNN/ORC International survey also indicates that more than six in 10 Americans say that Speaker of the House John Boehner should be replaced.
    The poll was conducted Friday through Sunday, just after the end of the 16-day partial federal government shutdown that was caused in part by a push by House conservatives to try and dismantle the health care law, which is President Barack Obama's signature domestic achievement.
    According to the survey, 54% say it's a bad thing that the GOP controls the House, up 11 points from last December, soon after the 2012 elections when the Republicans kept control of the chamber. Only 38% say it's a good thing the GOP controls the House, a 13-point dive from the end of last year.

    This is the first time since the Republicans won back control of the House in the 2010 elections that a majority say their control of the chamber is bad for the country.

      • Not just the cost-although that is bad enough, but also the closing of industries,layoffs,gov. death squads ,fines for not having it ,exposing our citizens to waste and fraud and all the while the gov. has taken over 15% MORE of the economy. This is just what our founders feared and is why they wrote the Constitution to LIMIT gov. power and expansion. The problem we also have is a president who doesn't like this country and picks and chooses what laws he wants to follow .

    • You libs come here and elsewhere day after day and tell us how Fox "lies" and is "faux"etc, yet we are supposed to accept some drivel from CNN-aka the Clinton News Network without question? Something wrong with this picture. Still have that "third grade test" ready and waiting ps I am not sure how many more times I can sing "sounds of silence".
