I warned about this very long ago. Hopefully lessons are learned.
I hope so. While I realize Republicans don't want to concede a lot to Democrats on certain positions, I and a lot of independents along with most Americans hope there is some compromise over the next four years. We elect officials to get **** done, not sit on their hands and bicker over every dumb thing.
