Someone’s Not Paying Attention

Reason 31,095 why the present American political system is broken: Representative Mike Pence, a Republican from Indiana (who has presidential ambitions), said today that “voters don’t want Republicans and Democrats to work together.” This, despite an Ipsos/Reuters poll released on Monday that found “‘[m]ore than half of voters (56%) want to see Congress prioritizing cross-party working to enable consensus-based policymaking.’ And a New York Times/CBS News poll released last week reported similar results. A whopping 78 percent said that Republicans should ‘compromise some of their positions to get things done’ versus only 15 percent who said they should ‘stick to their positions.’”
