House lawmakers return to Capitol Hill Tuesday, but not to a warm welcome from Americans.

Congressional approval is at an all-time low. A new Washington Post poll shows 84 percent of Americans now disapprove of the job Congress is doing.

The House of Representatives could be greeted by the largest Occupy protest yet, it protesters get their way. A daylong protest has been planned in front of the Capitol, which organizers hope will be the largest gathering of activists yet.

The National Park Service has allowed occupiers to camp on two public squares near the White House, giving protesters more of a foothold in D.C. than almost anywhere else in the country.

The Senate reconvenes next week.
