As Aisle Gets Wider, Arms Get Shorter

It was a startling admission. A top congressman revealed that he had voted against an administration priority as a way to score political points as his party battled to regain power. …Keenly aware from recent history that political missteps can cause big swings in the make-up of the House and Senate, members of the party out of power increasingly see little advantage in working with those controlling Congress to help them achieve victories that could come at the minority’s expense.

per OP--- regardless of the games--- congress controls the purse strings. the american people did not want this 1.7 trillion health bill.
congress did it anyway. doesnt look like a democracy does it?
