I keep reading on here all about how Democrats, and especially the President , refuse to negotiate and compromise. Normally, once a law is passed, it's a law until it's repealed or amended. Here, we have a minority trying to repeal by threat. So what is it that the Republicans are giving in return as their compromise? Saying that they'll shut the government down and default on the debt isn't a compromise. It's a threat and hostage taking. Are they willing to do something about climate change or investing in clean energy? Immigration reform? Higher taxes? All I here is whining about how the dems won't compromise when they're being offered nothing at all to secure that compromise. What am I missing here?
