KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- While the current Congress has been one of the lowest rated, voters returned many of the same lawmakers to Washington DC in Tuesday's balloting.

CBS Correspondent Howard Arenstein tells WKZO he heard some concerns about it expressed while covering the election.

"When it comes down to it Washington's going to be pretty much the same as it's been for the last couple of years," he said.

Some complaints about Congress have centered around a lack of willingness to compromise, but it did not seem to be enough to sway voters in enough of another direction to make significant change.

"The big question here is are we going to have four more years of gridlock or are these guys going to learn to work together," Arenstein said.
