I try to avoid posting too much about politics but

I was listening to Morning Edition on my drive to work and they were talking about how this year we managed to fund the government including the ACA without any fighting or government shutdowns because IT’S AN ELECTION YEAR.

It just makes me really fucking angry that politicians can only cooperate when their jobs are on the line. IMAGINE WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE IF THEY COULD COMPROMISE ALL THE TIME.

Ahahaha, I just took a political survey on the phone that was somewhat hilarious because the dude asking the questions was clearly not from this state, and didn’t know how to pronounce the (admittedly strange) term for people from this state.
