One of the headlines in the digital version of The New York Times today reads
“Democrats May Try Surprising Strategy: Align With Trump.”
It’s a spin that does an enormous disservice to the American people. The more accurate point of view is that after years of obstructionism and whining from the Republican members of congress, the Democrats are actually trying to move forward on an agenda that benefits the constituents who elected them. Imagine that: politicians actually earning their paychecks. Bravi!
I get a lot of petitions every day; and I sign a lot of them. The one I got yesterday asking me to tell Congress to continue with the stupidity of bringing the work of the nation of a halt because of some ill-conceived party politics is not one that will get signed anytime soon. I’ll just let that percolate for a bit.
