Congress Defined: 'Useless,' 'Worthless,' a 'Joke'

It can be tough to agree on a single word to describe something that affects every single American.

But when it comes to Congress, the task suddenly doesn't seem so insurmountable.

CNN asked Twitter and Facebook users to describe Congress in one word, and the most popular responses gave a clear verdict.

Congress is “useless,” “worthless,” and a “joke,” according to the most popular responses from over 5,000 respondents on social media.

Still trying to get a pulse on the most common feelings toward Congress? The other words on the top 10 list are “corrupt,” “incompetent,” “lazy,” “inept,” “idiots,” “selfish” and “dysfunctional.”

Do these responses surprise you?
