Here is something that you don’t see in politics too often. Two politicians from two different political parties who agree on an issue. In this video, you have former US Senator George McGovern (D) and former House member Jack Kemp (R) talking about lawsuit abuse in a :30 advertisement. Both gentlemen have since passed, but the mention of their names in political and non-political circles commands a certain level of respect.
Today’s political atmosphere is filled with cynicism and partisanship. Partisanship is simply the act of only listening to one side of an argument and then taking that side consistenly throughout any form of discourse. Politicians seem to vote on party lines so often that they wouldn’t even dare to vote for a bill or on idea brought forth by the opposition. Bipartisanship means that you will work with the other side to get things accomplished.
What issue do you believe that both parties should be able to agree upon?
