I'm reading this story about the Pew poll and 80 percent don't trust the federal government just as I'm leaving to go down to the local Social Security office. Will they be responsive to my needs? I've talked to their 800-number at least six times and have gotten at least four different answers.
What happens when a poll shows that 100 percent don't trust their federal government?
A quote from the story:
Nearly 80 percent of Americans say they can't trust Washington and they have little faith that the massive federal bureaucracy can solve the nation's ills, according to a survey from the Pew Research Center that shows public confidence in the federal government at one of the lowest points in a half-century.
