Is our system designed to get little done?

When a senate is controlled by one party and the house by another, isn't this a system that bows down to intransigence and inactivity?

    so when a party puts forward some ideas, and then when the other party puts them into a bill and then the first party suddenly flips and says no (to their own ideas) you don't think that's a failure of the system?

    The system is designed perfectly, it is the members of the house & senate that are acting like spoiled little babies. The political posturing by both parties needs to stop, But YES the Tea Baggers are the worse violators. when THEY chose to let the nations credit rating suffer the first time they should have been charged with treason!

    Most politicians are lawyers. The system is designed by lawyers to create work for more lawyers.

    I think inactivity is ill equipped to serve a changing world

    My U.S. History teacher in high school would gripe endlessly about how split-ticket voting and "voting for the man, not the party" had ruined our system by introducing gridlock. I think it's a very valid point. It's cluttered what was once a binary decision tree.
