Compromise...I know it is verboten round these parts to speak of thee [View all]

But here is the thing, a working political system in the US requires it.

Now there was mandate. This is basically for three things, where there is no room for it.

1.- Social Security/ Medicate...they have to be protected, if not out right strengthen.

2.- Taxes on the rich are on the table now, sorry Mitch.

3- believe it or not women's rights and immigration reform are part of it.

But it is time people get it...you want a functional Congress? The C word is not a four letter word. We do not live in a parliamentary system, we just don't. If you want to blame anybody for it, look at the who's who of the drafters of the Constitution. Do we probably need to change it? Yes, but a functioning government still requires that four letter word. Even one running under Parliamentary rules.

Oh and please stop it as to conservatives never having ideas, Obamacare had it's humble beginnings at the Heritage foundation and was first implemented by one version of Romney.

I disagree with a lot of what they believe in, and the loons have taken over the asylum, but damn it people, republicans are not less than human. Nor are they evil incarnate...that road leads to a very dark place where real people actually die.

Sore winners are just as annoying as sore losers and help nobody.

Oh and given the reaction to this recognition of their humanity before the election, I hope there is more civility now, though don't expect it.
