Too many Republicans and Democrats want to address the issues at the Federal level when they are State issues.
Those two parties are very much the same about what they believe is their job -when it comes to Congress.
I wish my State representatives would have some backbone and decline the Federal money and all the ties that come with it.
Considering since the first Presdient which parties have been in control, and out of control, there's two that come to mind immediately.
We really need to have more parties. : )
