Booing Congress


Now this is an interesting poll finding: Only 37 percent of Americans approve of how Congress is handling itself, a lower number than at any point since the Republicans impeached Bill Clinton. Seems like a plum time for the Democrats to start conducting their little “reform insurgency,” as the DLC likes to call it.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
