Curmudgeon, If you think that both parties are equally guilty of preventing
meaningful legislation, I think you are seriously in error.
You would be mistaken. Each party tries to make the other party look bad to get their own empty suits in and the OTHER guys empty suits out. Sorry, but that’s just the way partisan politricks works.
Get used to it.
Really. Check the number of times the Repubs have used the (IMO, bogus) philibuster process to block legislation, since Obama was elected. Compare that to anything approaching that being done by the Democrats during Republican President administrations.
