ON THE LEFT
Never in a million years would I have thought a united GOP Congress and president wouldn’t be able to move the ball—any ball—across the finish line. What happened to that “mandate”?
Alas, the GOP caucus is deeply divided. Congress is one year out from reelections, but not much is scheduled for votes except post office namings.
Maybe the GOP should reach out to Democrats. They vote, too.
Democrats also have to decide: Do they try to win Congress back, or do they want to create jobs and infrastructure projects in their districts? Senior staff say they’ll work together if asked. Sadly, the GOP isn’t asking. So Democrats are focused squarely on the Don, and they have the Twitter accounts to prove it.
Congress’s approval rating is abysmal, and America’s craving better dialogue. Let’s see if the GOP and Democrats can get it together long enough to get what everyone wants: results.
