Now, wether the president is good or bad, wether the proposed bill is good or bad, and who it will help/how fast it will help them makes no difference.If the bill is originated from Democrats, all the republicans stand against it. And visa versa. The system is terrible, and these politicians are too blind to see that they should concentrate on helping the people of America; the ones who elected them into their position. Both parties have had good leaders and bad leaders, and neither party is clearly defined by any sense of the term. But, for whatever reason, politicians foolishly stick to their party no matter the cost to anybody else.
Quote from: Pylons on April 25, 2010, 09:36:55 PMThere is a simple reason for such things. Because America is a democracy, politicians have to get elected, clearly. To get elected they need people to want to elect them, again clearly. Because they need the peoples' support they'll get jelly-legged on issues such as taxes and healthcare. And if they got elected once, the people electing them almost definitely support that politician's ideology. Therefore, if they decide to side with the other party on a controversial issue they will often not get reelected. Democracy sucks.
