Let me preface this by saying that I believe that the only thing that the US Congress can agree on is to not agree on anything. I think it is proving itself to be the most ineffective governing body in recent history, the result of blind partisanship, among other things. Now, to my point. There are two major parties in our governing system, the Democrats and the Republicans. Currently, the Republicans have the upper hand in the House of Representatives by 33 representatives, and the Democrats have the majority in the Senate by 8 senators. To insinuate that one party is responsible for our problems then is ludicrous, especially considering that the upper hands are almost equivalent (8% lead in each body). This is a bipartisan effort, just one that is so wrought with strife that it is constantly getting in its own way. You right-wingers: no, the Democrats are not solely responsible for all of our problems. You left-wingers: no, the Republicans are not responsible for all of our problems.
