With the Presidency, the House, and the Senate all remaining under control of the same parties, will DC remain gridlocked or will they all find a way to work together?

Highly unlikely to happen, but America needs to just tell ALL political parties to f@ck off, and return this country to the ORIGINAL intent of the Founding Fathers; FEDERALISM.

Why does everyone blame the repubs? Both parties are refusing to work together.

Why Calibama- you are a socialist. Rich FatCat? A small business owner trying to make payroll, is a FatCat? Wow. These are the people that will be most affected, and when unemployment numbers keep rising- don't go crying about it.

The house is elected every two years to be more in tune with the people..... To say they have to do as Obama or you liberals want, is asking them not to represent the people who voted for them.

Means test soc security. REAL cuts to the military. Bush tax cuts expire. Public option for health care. No special income categories... A dollar is a dollar. End the worthless " war on drugs". Reinstate Glass-Steagall.
It's a start.

You're American. Want to understand stripped liberties, go to Russia, Iran, and other countries where votes don't matter. Thank goodness America respects the votes of its people.

I think our house majority leader has not heard America. Republicans lost the presidency, plus seats in both the house and senate. It's time for compromise. I hope the republican house starts representing Americans and stops representing extremists, the reason they lost so much.

I think you mean DEMOCRATIC party. And you are wrong, only the republican party said its top priority is to make Obama a one term president. Now that have failed it is time to work on actually attempting to work and compromise democratic legislators, make solutions, it is all about attitude.

The Republican controlled house has passed more than 40 "ideas" too be this country forward. The Democrat controlled Senate won't even DEBATE a single one of them. They wouldn't put Obama's FY2012 budget up for a vote.

The DEMOCRAT PARTY needs to stop being the party of "no."

Until republicans put forward their own solutions that can be actually seen and debated about, there will be gridlock.

To just say no without giving a viable solution is just being petty and childish.

IMO, the role of the federal government is to protect the liberties of its citizens, NOT provide "free" healthcare, education..etc, or to "defend" our freedoms by occupying and overthrowing other countries and creating a never-ending war on "terror". The more gridlock in these directions, the better

I hope the republicans can hold off most of osama's stupid ideas. It's not the republicans that don't want to work. It's both parties that haven't agreed with more than Half of osama's ideas

I really hope they can cooperation. But since they are representation of us, and we can't even get along in a stupid app like SOH, then I'm pretty doubtful.

The Republicans can't afford to screw this up AGAIN. They'll be thinking about 2016 believe me. They need to come to the table and compromise. Give up on this no tax ever bit and pass the job bill. Pass the Buffet Rule. Put more money into education and job training. They just can't keep doing this.

I hope they can work together because the cliff bandaid affects me greatly: taxation and my research job. I voted GJ but I worry about what was mandated and feel it unfair. I work FT and am in accelerated eng. grad school (20-30hr/week), avging 4-5hrs of sleep, sacrificed luxuries...all at stake now

There will be more cooperation now that republicans know that Obama won't be a one term president and Obama has nothing to loose, but there will still be gridlock.

Your attitude is what's wrong with this country. That is why our country can't get s*** done. You conservatives hate Obama more than you love this country.

Scott, you may have to bag your own groceries, and that's fine. But the kid who loses his job loses more than money - he loses an opportunity for work experience. You seem very happy to make this kids decision for him. In a free country, shouldn't that be his choice - not government's?
