Today, July 17th, 2012, I came across an Article concerning the case where the Democrats gave in on budget cuts in order to compromise with the Republicans. There is a big difference in how much the two different parties are willing to spend. Because there is the tension between the two parties, the government is only a few steps away from “halting at a standstill.”
This article is interesting because the source of the article is considered liberal. The point I am trying to emphasize is the tension between the two parties, not the incident described in the article. The article is written by a biased Democrat in favor of the Democrats. The article emphasizes how much the Democrats are sacrificing and letting the Republicans have their way in order to prevent the government from shutting down. This makes the liberals look good while making the republicans look stubborn. In reality, the republicans might also have sacrificed to an extent, but this article does not mention any. This phenomenon also prevails in articles that favor the Republicans. Democrats will continue to belittle the conservatives and will try to keep the liberals. The political war never stops.
