    That would be more of a political strategy move than him doing the right thing. He has been and always will be, a person who does what he thinks is best for him and screw everyone else.

    Do you remember those?

    I imagine that if they do they will get more accomplished under Trump than they ever did under Obama.
    Apples and oranges. And anyway, that isn't the point.

    Trump wants to broker deals? Great! All he has to do is propose responsible, moderates/bills that appeal to every one in Congress except the extremists in either party.

    And thus, we get responsible, moderate new laws.

    AKA, laws that solve real problems.

    In the ACA bill alone there were over 100 GOP amendments.

    Obama tried to reach across the aisle several times in his first term.
    Obama reaching across the aisle :

    "elections have consequences"

    "republicans can get in the back of the bus"

    Clearly all you are is a bitter hater. Pretty much eliminates any weight your opinion carries.

    What moderate laws would the left go for exactly?
