So What's the Common Ground Moving Forward
I'd like to believe that all of us as Americans have a strong desire to see our partisan Federal Government work together to reach some solutions that will help to lead us out of our current economic woes and away from the fiscal cliff.
Maybe we can't start immediately with a balanced budget, but there has to be some common ground where both parties can concede and agree. Dems won't give up Obamacare or tax increases for the wealthy, Republicans wants corporate tax rates lowered.
What else do the parties want and where can concessions be made? I'd like honest input. I'd like to write my representatives and ask them to work towards compromise, but I think its important that we as citizens have an idea where we would mutually agree first.
My current suggestion is to lower the corporate tax rates. I don't know that anyone has an issue there. I'd also take Romney's idea to close corporate tax loopholes (though I do not know what they are). I would suggest that the Republicans stop fighting against Obamacare, unless they have a way to improve it. Are these not things that can be agreed on? What else can we agree on?
