Lets just say it: The Republicans are the problem.

We have been studying Washington politics and Congress for more than
40 years, and never have we seen them this dysfunctional. In our past
writings, we have criticized both parties when we believed it was
warranted. Today, however, we have no choice but to acknowledge that the
core of the problem lies with the Republican Party.

The GOP has become an insurgent outlier in American politics. It is ideologically extreme; scornful of compromise; unmoved by conventional understanding of facts, evidence and science; and dismissive of the legitimacy of its political opposition.

When
one party moves this far from the mainstream, it makes it nearly
impossible for the political system to deal constructively with the
country’s challenges.

    Lot of damage done in nine months.

    Bill Clinton got things done when Newt was speaker of the house. Obama is to extreme to work with.

    Sure they opposed Obama, but it was tough when he had em in the back seat. I voted for my representatives to impede Obama. I hope they continue to impede Obama. That's what 2010 was all about.

    You opine that "... the GOP is responsible for most of our deficit just so they can destroy entitlements ." I think i know to what you're referring, but I'm far from sure. Could you be a bit more specific? Thank you.

    Thank you for your response. I can see how this is intended as an explanation of "the GOP is responsible for most of our deficit", but I don't understand the link to "just so they can destroy entitlements".

    I'm a registered Independent who voted for Obama (won't make that mistake again) That said I really believe the Liberal agenda and political correctness of the Dem's is far more dangerous to America than anything the Republicans do. 1984

    Not sure what your problem with me is, our opinions and views are very similar. Sometimes my sarcasm doesn't come across in print--I'm guessing that's what happened somewhere along the line in one of my posts.

    Did republicans create a Health care bill behind closed doors? Did republicans lock out democrats from working with them on it ? No it was the democrats that did these things, they ARE the party of NO! I am glad the republicans have tried to stop the socialist agenda of the democrats, that is why there should balance period! This President and his socialist policies are the problem period.

    There are many problems in our government. But for anyone to say that it is the Republicans who have strayed so far from the center as if the liberal Democrats are anywhere near the center is rediculous beyond words. I think this question was posted just to "stir the pot" so to speak. Get real.

    Your idea of a good idea may not be everyone else's idea of a good idea. If your "good idea" ruled without opposition then we'd have a totalitarian government.

    I've read a little about it. To be honest as soon as I see the term "socio-economic" I get suspicious. Probably because the term "social" is attached to so many agendas that I do not agree with.
