Where the biggest problem we have is that Democrats are too partisan.
Where the fight to reform health care is not a pressing concern:
“Somewhere along the line, the White House lost its way,” said Rep. Ike Skelton, D-Mo., chairman of the House Armed Services Committee. “Instead of focusing on solutions to help America’s families wade through the wreckage of the worst economic crisis since the 1930s, Washington has wasted valuable time wrestling with partisan politics in an effort to rush through drastic reforms that do not directly address our most immediate needs.”
Gee I don’t know about you, but it sure is more important to me that our Congresspeople are nice to each other than whether or not I will have a major medical problem and be out of a job and as a result hopelessly bankrupt for the rest of my life.
Yes, Congressman Skelton, the problem isn that Democrats have been “too partisan”.
It’s not as if the Democrats have given away the store to the Republicans while the Republicans have openly vowed to frustrate every iota of the stated Democratic Agenda, and still got nothing for their efforts.
