Reince Priebus gets it.
At the Republican National Committee conference in Los Angeles last week, the Chair of the Republican Party spoke about his vision for a future in which the old caricature of the “Grand Old Party” gives way to the new, more inclusive “Growth and Opportunity Party.”
Four years ago Americans had an expectation that we would be more unified today. We are always going to have the far wings of the Democrat and Republican Party’s trying to divide us. But, wasn’t our 1st African American President going to reach out to ALL Americans and find a common ground? Today, we stand more divided than ever. Obama doesn’t even seem personally engaged with his own Congressional Democrats, let alone reaching out to Republicans.
If you’re like most Americans, you’re inundated with the obligations of day-to-day life. You have probably heard only in passing, the dire warning on your local TV newscast, "Washington gets closer to going over Fiscal Cliff." Sadly, such government paralysis has become routine, Washington is so polarized that less than a month after the Presidential Election, it seems elected officials are in the same situation of getting nothing done.
Have you noticed yet that just about every political decision from Washington these days comes down to the very end, scaring the American People about repercussions? Will unemployment benefits run out for those barely surviving? Are cuts to Medicare looming for seniors? Will you soon lose the Mortgage Interest deduction on your taxes?
