If partisanship is not roundly defeated at the polls
sufficient to chastise each member of Congress
and make each member compromise for the good of  the nation
then it will be on the head of these worthies if  our nation tanks
People will vote as they will vote but eighty percent or more will be voting
to end this unspeakable partisajn immature ill-performance
