Two-Party System

Spinelessness and Obstructionism: "Senate Democrats abruptly abandoned an omnibus budget bill for the coming year, pushing major spending decisions into the next Congress and giving Republicans immense new leverage to confront President Barack Obama's priorities."

Meanwhile... "Congress at midnight Thursday approved an $801 billion package of tax cuts and $57 billion for extended unemployment insurance. ...Administration officials said Mr. Obama would sign the package into law on Friday."

Barack Obama said he's change the way Washington works. And he has.

It's more broken than ever.
