Dysfunctional Congress

When proposals are dead before they are presented to Congress for the sole reason it comes from the other party – that is dysfunction.

When a government shutdown occurs to make an ideological statement but no progress – that is dysfunction.

There are many very smart people in congress who could get a lot accomplished if they would remember that they are there to work together and make things better for the people and not just to get re-elected.

As an independent I would be able to reason with the individual Congressmen.  If I held get-togethers with both sides, at least they would talk to one another after hours as they did a few decades ago.

Working with both sides could greatly reduce dysfunction.
