Okay, let me get this straight — President Obama will unveil his version of health care legislation that will include several ideas brought forth by Republicans during the bipartisan summit last week and the GOP has already announced they're against his version. But wait, did I mention it hasn't been revealed yet? They haven't even seen what he's proposing and they've already announced that they are against it.
Yes, we have the greatest political structure in the world — checks and balances between the three branches of government. But for now, it only seems to be the best on paper because the execution of that model is fucked up. No wonder why so many of us are frustrated with the federal government.
Someone needs to sit down folks from both sides of the aisle — like Bunning, McConnel, Reid, Pelosi, and Shelby and remind them that all the skills they need to succeed as good leaders and stewards of the people's trust, were learned when they were 5 years old. Share, be nice to others, use your manners, don't fight, keep your hands to yourself (that one may be the most difficult!) and treat others the way you'd like to be treated.
