I’m tired of Partisanship

I got to thinking yesterday, when I heard that the House had voted down the President’s Jobs Bill, that I’m really tired of partisanship. What happened to compromise? What happened to working together toward the common good?

It’s really upsetting to me when votes fall along party lines and nothing gets done. Now, I’m not saying that the Jobs Bill is good or bad. This isn’t intended to be a commentary on that. What bothers me is that I get the impression that Republicans and Democrats will only vote for their own ideas. It doesn’t matter if it’s a good idea or not. What matters is who proposed the idea and that’s a terrible way to go about anything.

So, why do we let out politicians get away with it? Why do we settle for nothing getting accomplished? Are we so disillusioned that we think only one party can be right? I hope not. I hope we know better deep down inside. I hope that in the coming election we can set a course to change this situation. I hope we can get passed our hang ups and work together. We’ve seen what happens when we can’t so let’s try something different.

  1. Agreed. It seems to me that the decisions being made both in Washington and on Wall Street are becoming increasingly irrelevant to the things that really matter in the world.
