  1. They don’t EVER accomplish anything. Even with control of the Oval Office and both wings of Congress. Other than getting rich and re-elected. The days of cooperation ended before it started.

    1. It seems like the only time something really gets done is when a Pres uses Executive Order to speed up the process. All the parties want to do is stall.

      1. Yep. It’s grandstanding and pandering to their base. They’re more concerned about keeping their gig than the welfare of the country as a whole. None of them can agree on anything. A bold decision may not get them sent back to the gold mine that is Congress. Public servants? My ass. 😡

      2. Washington is such a joke. If a Pres could do one thing I wish we could have term limits in Congress and no lobbyists,

  2. Not much. In his press conference just in the past hour, President Trump said very clearly that if the Democrats in the House begin to investigate him or his administration (which they are sure to do, having described government oversight as a duty, not optional), he will retaliate with every resource at his disposal (including the investigation powers of the Senate) and there will be no bipartisan cooperation.

    1. I have never experienced such division in my life. There’s not much room for “in the middle” thought. You either love Trump or hate him.

  3. The hateful T man will be overpowering as ever. I just think any changes will have to wait a while. The basic policies will not change but it will take longer to push them in.

    1. Government is designed to move slowly and accomplish very little. I imagine politicians really struggle with an outsider coming in and having any say.

  4. Yes, they will accomplish showing the American people who is representing our interests as opposed to who is representing the interests of big business and the 1%. The bulk of accountability lays with GOP Senators. They can show their constituents that they represent their interests by backing House legislation, of they act like spoiled brats. Those republicans who want campaign for president are unlikely to enter bipartisan agreements because they don’t want their Rep. challengers to throw up in their face that they voted with Democrats.

    1. So your answer is for Republican leadership to do what Democrats want them to do? The two ideologies will never see eye-to-eye.

      1. No. They should do what their constituents want and what is good for this nation because they represent all of their constituents and not only those who voted for them.

    1. The politicians in Washington don’t know what to do with the guy. He doesn’t act or talk like a President should. He’s unpredictable.

  5. Is this situation something that has not happened before? I thought that there had been a divide under the previous administration that stalled things as well. I’m just a Canadian asking this question.
