If you want to encapsulate what is wrong with Washington in a 15 minute video, watch this segment from Morning Joe:
Representative Huelskamp of Kansas came on the show to talk about the so-called “fiscal cliff” and solutions to gun violence. He ended up showing a stunning lack of reasonableness as he refused to budge on absolutely anything. This has been the story the past two years with the Tea Party Congress. Take a far-right position, dig in and never negotiate with the other side in good faith.
