Give The People What They Want

No, the public does not want Washington D.C style 'bipartisanship'. They want the Democratic Party agenda.

The American public is supports the Democratic Majority agenda. It's up to the Republican party to work with the Democratic Majority for the common good. But, I won't hold my breath.
