Yes, God yes!!! Each time Congress gets into a lockgrid the American public well fare is held hostage. If parties are in disagreement and refuse to work together nothing happens, nothing gets done, so we might as well have the Congress halls empty. Currently with bipartisan politics, neither pretty legislators have any incentive to work together and compromise if they make the entire process a war of attrition. They need an incentive to get things done in a way that suits the interests of all the American peoole!!!
