    The 1st panel makes sense. If the partisan bickering could just stop and they could lay out the cards on the table And say “I will give you this, if you give me that”

    Unfortunately, the second panel makes sense. What the Republicans have stated they really want is for Obama to fail. So there’s no way.

    Also unfortunately, the polls show they are not smart enough to give up a bad policy.

    And now Paul Ryan wants to replace Obamacare with “patient centered” health care. A name change? Or another voucher plan? Rhetoric does not a plan make.

    Same old, same old. Let’s screw the taxpayers and give more money to big companies.

    The cartoon expresses an ideal that seems unachievable under current election rules. The “retirement” pkgs legislators get after they leave Washington just add insult to injury. An entertainer stated a couple of years ago that the democrats had become Reagan “Republicans” and the GOP had become insanely conservative. that’s the polite way to put it anyway. Had more real liberals not been so disappointed by Mr. Obama’s failure to be a true liberal president, the results of the 2010 elections would have been vastly different; and, had the GOP been more moderate and inclusive, the results of the 2012 election would have also been vastly different. In their efforts to appeal to narrow bases, both parties are failing the majority of their people and in doing so, create division among some, and apathy among others.
    Respectfully,

    America Shmamerica. What the GOP cares about is the GOP. Period. They can’t stand to see America succeed under a Democratic president, and will work as hard as they need to make sure it doesn’t.

    All parties involved in talks to bring about a resolution need to grow up. After the nice gains recently made in the markets & seeing our 401K’s going up I’d hate to see it flushed away over petty party politics. While unemployment is finally coming down & companies are making money we can’t afford to let these budget sequester cuts stand or we’ll be in a new recession before too long.

    Sounds like a good plan to me.

    And pretty much everything in America is still getting better and better every month, every year.
    .
    Even with those fighting tooth and nail to stop the progress it continues to improve.
    .
    Hah, America is on a roll and even the stupid sequester cannot stop it now.
    .
    Take that, anti american jerks.

    I sure hope that you are the correct one here!!

    EXACTLY right. 100%. The GOP wants ONLY what it wants. Period. That’s why they are such failures.
