Gavin Salmi, Crown Point | "It's not good. For one, insurance has risen like crazy with Obamacare. They've done some all right things, but it's not the best. The situation Obama was left with wasn't optimal."
Bill Egnatz, Portage | "I would rate them very low. They don't know how to compromise and deal. They are all interested in special interest groups. When they get together with the lobbyists, it doesn't work well for the people."
George Young, Hammond | "I really don't see Congress and Obama working together. Congress and the president aren't on the same page. They're not working with each other but against each other."
Alserdo Guerrero, Hammond | "I think a lot of people are against him as opposed to Bush. There's more pressure now. I don't see Obama and Congress together."
Curtis Dickerson, Merrillville | "On a one to 10 scale, a 3. I'm a Christian, and I'm not in agreement with laws that have been passed and the big government mentality. They're too involved in our lives. I like small government."
Marlene Zavesky, Crown Point | "On a zero to 10 scale I've give them a four. They don't seem to know what they're doing. Obama is in it for himself, and Congress doesn't know what they're doing."

The assassination of John F. Kennedy was a pivotal moment on which the world suddenly turned. How can we make it spin back?
Millions of Americans have discovered health care cancellation notices in their mailboxes. The president’s repeated claim that you can keep your plan if you like it is yet another broken promise.
