Look, the Congress needs to VOTE. Do something, push some legislation out and let it go to the Supremes if it's controversial/contentious. This
business of each party acting as obstructionist to the other is bull#. We vote them in to get stuff done, not dawdle, jack around, grandstand or
politicize. We have three branches to check each other but what's happening is that the President is acting outside of his authority with Executive
Orders and the Congress is manipulating their role through gerry-mandering and procedural shenanigans. So nothing gets done or it's a break-even.
It's like when a football team persistently runs the damn ball straight up the middle for no damn yards. Coaches that do that get fired.
Congress needs to move the ball down the field, no matter the issue, or go home. # or get off the pot. Either pass some legislation on key issues,
such as guns, or drop the issues and move on.
