Are historically low congressional approval ratings paradoxically a sign of an effective government?

Are historically low congressional approval ratings paradoxically a sign of an effective government?
I believe they are because if congress 'does too much', they can create irreparable consequences. It's better for congress to intercede as little as needed and let autonomous business and consumption forces run the economy and country. Only during times of pressing crisis (2008 bank meltdown, 911) does congress need to act, and they have as evidenced by the efficacy and expediency of the TARP bank bailout and 911 terror response.

When congress is hated, it's because they are not catering to anyone's whims. The right wing wants program X the; left wants the opposite. And if either of their wishes are satisfied the result could be deleterious. Let's do nothing.
