I know, the thread title isn’t anything profound. It just seems to me the gridlock and refusal to cooperate on the part of Congress is actively hurting the American people.
This particular problem is not a Trump issue. It seems to me that there are going to be for Big missed opportunities during the last four years, we are Trump would have been willing to sign a bill and Congress couldn’t or wouldn’t deliver him one:
2. Transportation spending
3. Prescription drug reform
4. Police reform
5. Additional coronavirus stimulus
In each case, one party or the other decided not to compromise for political purposes. Their consideration seemed to be about electoral politics or not giving credit, rather than doing the right thing.
Of course, the blame falls with voters, because they do not hold their own representatives accountable.
