Whether you blame the weather or not, the results remain the same

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the unemployment rate was unchanged at 9.7% in February.

Also unchanged is the dissatisfaction of North Carolinians upset by a lack of progress on the economy and health care reform.

According to the latest Elon University poll, about 75 percent of North Carolinians surveyed disapprove of the way Congress is doing its job.

Poll director Hunter Bacot joins Chris Fitzsimon on “News and Views” this weekend and explains why Congress may continue to see its popularity sag, until consumers feel more confident about their ability find work or keep a job.

For those keeping score,  it’s estimated 14.9 million Americans were out of work last month.
