Message to Washington: GET IT DONE!
Take a poll, but this one no one will want to admit: When you were in the polling booth, did you simply check off Republican on every count or almost every count, hoping you wouldn't have to deal anymore with hearing about gridlock? And another one no one wants to admit: Did you even know who you were voting for? Or what they represent?
True, some people do study every line and word on the sample ballot. But how many don't? Where is that poll? No one would take it.
It seems clear that the majority of people are making a statement:
Washington: "GET IT DONE"! And the truth of the matter is, much of it is not the Democrats' fault, in fact just the opposite: Was it the majority of the Republicans in Washington who have held up legislation, voted down legislation, blocked and gridlocked? Excuse me, but wasn't our country in a financial free-fall only a few years ago and is now bouncing back? Wasn't one of the biggest terrorists in the world captured and killed? Hasn't unemployment dropped 3+ points?
Sure, there is much blame to go around, but the truth of the matter is: Whether one or both sides of the aisles are responsible, the American people are 'fed up' with the fact that partisan and bipartisan has to be dinner table words. And they did something about it.
So, here we are. You don't have to be a playwright or a rocket scientist to figure out that with the limelight, comes the spotlight. Watch what you wish for. The Republicans could get some great work done, they could pass some much-needed legislation and bills, join hands in getting results. But will they? Only time will tell, and the clock is ticking... 2016 will be here before we know it.
