If compromise is not the spice of life, it allows all of us to keep going, especially when we do not see eye to eye with another person.
The problem is that a certain person does not understand the concept of compromise.
The government shutdown due to the disagreement over the border wall continues into its 4th day. Hundreds of thousands of government workers are working without pay or on furlough. At this point in time, it is still up in the air as to when the shutdown will be over.
From my perspective, the Democrats have done everything they can to work with you know who and the Republicans. But he does not want to compromise. There is a way to keep our borders safe without wasting billions of American tax dollars (not Mexican tax dollars) on a border wall, but he doesn’t care.
Any seasoned politician will tell you that we, the voters of this country, have a long memory. That memory extends to elections. The stock market is on a free fall, people’s jobs/financial futures are on the line and another Guatemalan child has died in the custody of the government.
When it comes to government, compromise will always get you somewhere. The only place arrogance and thinking that you know it all will get you is losing an election. But he has not figured that out yet and probably never will.
