It's too bad this had to happen, but this will now be the norm. It's been obvious since Obama took office, that the 2 parties cannot, WILL NOT work together any longer. We, the people, are sick of paying salaries to reps who get nothing done. The only true power in Washington today lies in the lobbyist who have taken control. This will NEVER end until lobbying is abolish and made a crime against our country. It is time to start talking about this. The other possible solution? End our 2 party monopoly!!!
