I don’t believe I have ever seen a time when Congress was so divided on a partisan basis as it now is. The Republicans in both the House and Senate have opposed every program proposed by the Obama Administration regardless of whether these programs are good or bad. In fact, some of the GOP members oppose a program and then enjoy the benefits of a program back home by taking credit for it. Sadly, the Republican Party only opposes and offers no real plans as alternatives. The Obama Administration inherited a series of severe economic problems. While all that the President has proposed hasn’t been good, most of it has been. The GOP should at least, give him a chance. But, the President must also lead in his capacity as our nation’s elected leader.
Spirited debate is always good and it’s important for members to take a stand on principle, but to oppose everything just because the president is a Democrat is just plain wrong. The stalemate that has resulted is not good for our country in my opinion. There are too many problems that demand solutions. Hopefully, a spirit of unity and compromise will eventually replace the mood that we now have in our Nation’s Capitol. The American people expect more from our political leaders and they deserve it.
