And when the Republicans put forth legislation, the Democrats oppose because they feel that it is bad for the country.The Republicans are basing their objections to bad legislation on what is good for the country. That is why they keep filibustering bad legislation by the Democrats. They're doing it for the good of the country.
Each feels they are right can can point out flaws in the other.
As long as they feel they have to put the party line ahead of common sense; stagnation and stalemates will occur.
Neither side is willing to expose their jugular by sitting down with the other to come up with something that is workable.
1) Their own side will consider them to be a traitor by giving in to the other or sacrificing their ideals.
2) Someone on the other side will in some way use the exposure to back stab due to ideology.
