Where are you Heidi Heitkamp?
Our country needs leadership and you are a leader.
Why can’t a grand bargain be done in the heat of summer? Is it just wishful thinking?
The Republicans are as terrified as the Democrats about December — why not capitalize and put to bed issues both sides NEED to address now before election night.
I suggest 4 that already have a bi-partisan base and a logical compromise available, probably among bills you’ve already sponsored or championed.
The four are: corporate tax reform to a revenue based tax system, immigration reform that protects the illegal immigrants already here but imposes order and borders going forward, a declaration of war against ISIL and a no-buy, no-fly rule that gives people on the list that have been refused a gun sale — due process through the courts.
I know it’s wishful thinking, but what does a rationale man have left in our current political environment except wishes?
