Washington, Oct. 30 (ANI): An overwhelming majority of Americans say, if given the choice, they would want to axe every member of the U.S. Congress.

A Rasmussen Reports survey released yesterday found 65 percent of likely voters would prefer to fire every member of Congress and start from scratch.

A whopping 82 percent of Republicans and 78 percent of independents told the pollsters they wanted to give everyone on Capitol Hill the heave-ho, the New York Post reports.

Only 20 percent of all voters wanted to keep the entire Congress unchanged.

“If you needed any more confirmation that Washington is perceived as a broken entity by the American people, well, this is it,” said National Republican Congressional Committee spokesman Ken Spain. (ANI)
