Democrats: "The Republicans want to starve the poor, deny aid to people. We should tax the rich into oblivion"

Republicans: "The Democrats want to spread the wealth. They will raise your taxes. They spend, spend,spend.


Both sides: "We will create jobs with _________. We will bring America out of this Recession by _____________"

This has been a public service joke.........errrrrr.....announcement. Yeah, that's the word I'm looking for.

Sometimes reality is funnier than fiction. Sometimes it's sadder.

Yes... yes it has!!

Shouldn't both parties run the stand up comedy gig around the country in the clubs, as well as on TV??

The problem is if someone came up with a great idea that would work. 1The other side would not vote for it, 2.it would be tweaked and amended until it no longer resembled the idea 3.Someone would want to add on some ridiculous bill to it that would undermine the idea in the first place.

I would like to suggest an amendment to the constitution. All bills have to be voted on one at a time with nothing attached and they all have to be televised with a list of names on a people's website of who voted for and against it. Bet we would have fewer people voting against things just because they came from the other side and I bet there would be a lot less waste. And someone should have to read those bills out loud before the vote so the people will know exactly what is being voted on. Bet bills would be a lot shorter too. LOL

Whatever would 'Drain the Swamp Thing' say......"We have to pass this bill, to find out what's in it." ??

As an American Citizen and Taxpayer, I'll get it in the end.

In the bygone days when there was no majority, elected officials compromised and came up with something doable that at least addressed an issue. This is no longer the case. Elected officials are now more concerned with stroking their ego and delighting their hard core base than representing all of their constituents. Grandstanding has taken precedence over practicality. Dogmatism and gridlock has been the disastrous result.

I have come to the conclusion that the elected officials of today find it much easier to strive for self serving sound bites and say what they don't like, than it is to to roll up their sleeves and find a workable solution that, at least, partially addresses a problem/issue in some proactive way.

It is quite obvious that our nation is diverse in political opinions, interests and agendas. It is also obvious that we must accommodate these. Instead of proactive accommodation, I see rhetoric. The result is that when all is said and done, much is said and not a damned thing gets done

Thank you!! For a long time now, that has been my point of view of all my comments regarding politics and politicians- some comments that have gone on in length for a while, to include all of the 'self serving benefits' the politicians have been enjoying for decades at the citizen's expense! And in return, they accomplish absolutely nothing!

Strega,

Here in Illinois the state constitution requires that all bills before either house of the legislature, except budget bills, deal with one subject only. And most are voted on a roll-call vote, so it's no secret how any legislator voted. But the state of Illinois is still millions, billions, of dollars in the hole with no solution in sight, and there doesn't seem to be any political support around the state for either cutting state programs or raising taxes.
