Politically Speaking, My Views on the Left the Right and Everywhere in Between

Compromise is the Name of the Game

Posted in General, Issues by politicalily on December 22, 2009

With the healthcare bill working its way through the Senate there has been a whole lot of compromising going on and I think that is absolutely wonderful! Democrats will say that they are right and Republicans will say they are the ones that know the answer. In the end both parties are right. Democrats are right in the sense that they are right for helping people and accomplishing their party’s goals and Republicans are right in the sense that they are right for helping businesses and accomplishing the goals of their party. Everyone is right!

Of course, you aren’t going to get Democrats to admit that Republicans are right and Vice-Versa, but that doesn’t really matter as long as there is some bipartisan action going on. Democrats have had to give up certain things, such as the public option, to pass healthcare and many compromises have had to be made in order to sway congressmen to vote yea. Maybe this is a good thing. When compromises are made between the parties regarding healthcare or any other issues the American People are the ones who win. All of America is neither Left nor Right, most Americans would place themselves somewhere in the middle. When a bill is passed or a decision made that has both Republican and Democratic input it is more likely to suit the entire nation. When you combine Democrats looking out for people and Republicans looking out for business everyone has someone looking out for them. When compromises are made everyone gets something and everybody is happy. That is why compromise should always be the name of the game, at least in policy making!
