Obama Approval at All Time Low

According to a New NBC/WSJ poll, President Obama’s approval rating has plummeted to the lowest level of his Presidency.

poll-alltime-low-obama-approvalOne month after a frustrating  Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare) roll-out,  President Obama’s approval rating is at forty-two percent (42%) the lowest of his presidency.

While the frustrating Heathcare.gov website failures are one component of Obama’s approval drop, pollsters state multiple other issues that have contributed to his recent drop in approval. Pollsters point to NSA Spying, Syria, Benghazi and the government shutdown as other reasons for the Presidents recent drop in approval.

President Obama is not the only one who is reaching all time lows.  Congressional Republicans approval is now at twenty-two percent (22%.) Congressional Democrats are unpopular as well at thirty-seven percent (37%.)

Only twenty-two percent (22%) of the respondents to the poll said the country was headed in the right direction.

These statistics present an overall negative view of government leadership across the board.

White House releases Immigration Fact Sheet

FACT SHEET: Fixing our Broken Immigration System so Everyone Plays by the Rules

America’s immigration system is broken. Too many employers game the system by hiring undocumented workers and there are 11 million people living in the shadows. Neither is good for the economy or the country.

It is time to act to fix the broken immigration system in a way that requires responsibility from everyone —both from the workers here illegally and those who hire them—and guarantees that everyone is playing by the same rules.
