Democrats see our nation's infrastructure crumbling and want to fix it while republicans see our nations infrastructure crumbling and instead ignore it. Republicans want to reduce taxes for the wealthy so instead of spending on infrastructure repair and replacement, they will just let it fall apart on it's own while increasing the income inequality here in America. Republicans want more personal freedom for themselves and less government intervention in their capitalistic enterprises While at the same time wanting greater government intervention in the personal decisions of women. A bit hypocritical but who cares when those with all most of the money, republicans, control the narrative.
Republicans have managed to make compromise a dirty word in our politics, economics and social lives. They see not that we need to improve on the policies of equality and fairness, but instead see a future where only the strong survive. A dog eat dog world where the wild west meets Mad Max. As long as they can control what democracy looks like and how it is defined, we, the rest of us citizens are expected to accept it. Our voting is being restricted while our ability to find good paying jobs is going away. Our wages are stagnant while the wealthy enjoy the greatest income inequality gap in a century, while still wanting more. I would rather compromise with the Green Party to get things done before I compromise with republicans. They have worn out their welcome.
