Americans Mistrust Politicians on Economy

You mean to tell me that most people don't think the geniuses in Congress are smarter than the rest of us? Hardly.....the problem, of course, is identifying the few people that serve in Congress who want to give us back the power so WE can make those decisions. The politicians are well aware of their own incompetence and the level of uncertainty involved, they simply don't want to give up the enormous power they have to effect the economy.
