#MakeDCListen was Frank Luntz's "best political soundbite of 2013"

There is a problem in Washington, and the problem is bigger than a continuing resolution. It is bigger than ObamaCare. It is even bigger than the budget. The most fundamental problem and the frustration is that the men and women in Washington aren't listening. If you talk to the man and woman on the street, that is the message you hear over and over again: Why don't they listen to me? Why don't they hear what we have to say? They aren't listening to the millions of people, Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Libertarians, across the spectrum who say our elected officials get to Washington and they stop listening to the people.

FRANK LUNTZ: That was the best political soundbite of 2013. Regardless of whether you support or oppose his tactics and his techniques that language about Washington not listening did better than anything we tested from any senator, any congressman or the president. That is the number one rhetoric, and I'll tell you something: Congress and the White House need to pay attention to those words and listen.

If you watch the clip, 95% of Republicans reacted favorably and 75% of Democrats also reacted favorably.
