I am so sick of reading political news right now. I am so sick of the “my way or NO ONE GETS ANYTHING” tone of the rhetoric. Why are “cooperation” and “compromise” nasty words? In politics especially they are a requirement. When people don’t apply these we get half-assed solutions that get thrown out before they even have a chance to make any significant impact (bad OR good). Lemme give an example. Obamacare has problems. A LOT of problems. I said since day 0 of the discussion I couldn’t 100% support ANY passage which exempted Congress. AFTER ACA passed I still grumbled about this point – I think Congressmen should have to buy their own insurance from the exchange from within THEIR district. So little tiny district in Wyoming (or GA) has shitty options? Guess who lives with shitty options? THAT SAID, when the GOP kept trying to “repeal and replace” without ever actually building or talking about a replacement PLAN….
