Did you miss the part where Trump accepted the blame?
trump supporters are to die for. The man tells them what he's going to do. He tells them he's not going to blame dems He does what he said he was going to do. Blames dems. Then, his supporters go along with it and start blaming the dems too. Is there even a word that describes that?

So what should the Dems do? Just give the Reps what they want? Think the Reps will reciprocate?

See, that argument goes both ways.

We need to elect moderate politicians who will negotiate instead of digging in every time...

Also, term limits for Congress would help, but not likely to happen...

It will last as long as republicans in congress remain stupid enough to not stop it. Congress should pass the bill that was passed unanimously and then tell the dumbshit to sign it and if you refuse we will override your veto.
The Democrats won’t vote for a Republican bill.

Then, since there is no reason for either group to ever cooperate, there is no reason to complain about it when they don't. ;)

Oh, you're wrong about that.

We just GOTS to complain.

It's why political hotwire is here.

Remove the complaining from this little obscure political forum and what you got left?

Not much.
