Gregg: Bipartisanship Must Reign to Fix Problems

Democratic policies of the past two years sent voters scurrying to the polling places in favor of Republicans last November. Now, with Democrats no longer in control of Congress, bipartisan cooperation is needed to move forward with the nation’s problems, former Sen. Judd Gregg, R.-N.H., (pictured) writes in The Hill.

bipartisanship, judd“The American people sent as focused a message as this country has seen in decades. It was simple: Stop the spending, address the deficit and do something about the debt,” he says.

“For the last two years we had a parliamentary system, government by supermajorities on the left who did not need nor countenance input from the rest of America. It failed miserably, in large part because the party of former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi missed most of the country that was to the right of San Francisco.”

Now that government is divided, Americans want common sense solutions, Gregg says.

“To fulfill the call of the last election requires the Congress and president to govern. This much must be obvious. And one other thing should be obvious. To govern in a divided government, the two parties must agree. It is called bipartisanship.”
