Following the government shutdown and the debt ceiling crisis, polling has showed that a record 85 percent of Americans disapprove of Congress. Here’s how the nation’s lawmakers are attempting to boost their dismal approval ratings:

  • Addressing all constituents as “master”
  • Free autographs for entire month of December
  • Trying even harder to defund Affordable Care Act
  • Touring the country performing live legislation sets based on audience suggestions
  • Each visitor to House or Senate gallery allowed to dump one 32-ounce soda onto congressman of their choice
  • Inviting legendary guitarist G.E. Smith to sit in on congressional sessions
  • Debuting smiling, lovable plush Bill-y the Legislator Alligator mascot who dances around the congressional chambers at all times
  • Passing even just one bill
