Excerpt


Sen. Evan Bayh, D-Indiana

One thing Americans seem to agree on these days is Congress is corrupt, dysfunctional and far from serving the people’s interests.

Whether in the House, or Senate, the nation’s business is neglected.  Partisanship has become civil war. War comes when extremists rule the day. In this regard we have much to learn from people like Evan Bayh and Pat Buchanan.

Stunning the political establishment this week, widely respected two-term Senator Bayh announced he would not seek a third.

Explaining his reasons, Bayh said:

“For some time, I have had a growing conviction that Congress is not operating as it should. There is too much partisanship and not enough progress — too much narrow ideology and not enough practical problem-solving. Even at a time of enormous challenge, the peoples’ business is not being done.”
