pol, budget, process, disgustingRidiculous lead the list of words used to describe the process with disgusting, frustrating, messy, and disappointing rounding out the top five.

Americans are also blaming everyone. Some 70 percent said Obama and congressional Republicans and Democrats share some of the blame.

Breaking it down, 80 percent blamed Republicans and Democrats while 72 percent blamed Obama, The Washington Post reported.

Among independents, 78 percent blamed Obama, 82 percent blamed Republicans and 87 percent blamed Democrats.
