I am completely unhappy with Congress.
No matter who has control, both houses need someone at the top who will actually work to get things done when they need to be done.
How many decision of whether to look at something or not is based solely on what is good for the party and not good for the country.
Agreed. Even with divided government and politicians who hated each other, the Newt Gingrich / Bill Clinton years were very successful. Both sides attempted to work for the benefit of the voters. The same thing with Reagan and Tip OíNeill. Neither side remained ideologically ďpureĒ, because the thought was the electorate had to tolerate it.
Under GWB, I think Congress started to say ďscrew the peopleĒ. It was Congressional Republicans who held up immigration reform, Democrats who filibustered judges and attempted to obstruct.
Each successive administration / Congress has seemed to get worse. We saw leaders of both sides essentially adopt a strategy of ďmy way or no wayĒ. Healthcare, DACA, stimulus. None of it matters, because each side will be supported by their own partisan backers no matter how much the country fails.
