Yes, it drives me crazy that the two sides can't COMPROMISE and get something done. But sadly some refuse to compromise and work together to get an effective, updated immigration policy into place. Unfortunately many prefer to spout sound-bites and not accept something "less than" whatever the talking point is. This happens on both sides of the aisle but important people must be able to, must be allowed to, compromise and come up with solutions that do not follow a party line WITHOUT being attacked constantly by various talking-heads or Twitterers etc. to the point that they can't do that.
Give me some more barriers and improved border security but no "the wall", give me increased immigration with stronger enforcement tools to minimize hiring of those that shouldn't be here, give me more medical coverage and protection and reduce "permanent welfare", give me increased tax on "the bottom 50%" and increased cap gains taxes etc.
Just figure it out, and take your lumps, and for god sakes people, STOP voting out of office anyone who won't bow to what you or your party wants.
