Washington seems to be in the grip of hyperpartisan gridlock these days. Important bills are passed on party-line votes (when they are passed at all) and the investigative committees of Congress appear to be sideshows, unable to agree on basic facts. Many Americans despair that Republicans and Democrats seem incapable of coming together to do anything important.
"Republicans and Democrats Just Did Something Big Together" is from the April 11, 2018 Opinion section of The Washington Post. It was written by Marc A. Thiessen and narrated by Sam Scholl.
