It is obvious to me that elected officials who push extreme agendas with no intention of cooperating with each other will do more harm than good for their electorates and Americans' general faith in their government.
Talking news heads do not help as they seek to offer sensationalistic "reporting" in order to attract a viewership.
A fairly recent exception to all of this would have been NCLB (No Child Left Behind), a bipartisan education act which started out being a good thing, but now is not. Unfortunately, our government's preoccupation with power has not motivated anyone to examine the law which needs tweaked at best.
It truly feels like it is all nothing more than a game to these elected officials. I hate it.
How could our legislators' working together for the good of its citizenship be a bad thing?
And what about us? We get to ride the seesaw and hope for better days.
