Experimental feature

From Mr Steven M. Clayton.

Sir, Watching the fiscal cliff negotiations is interesting; you would think that the Republicans were the ones that won most of the races on Election Night because they are the ones making all the demands.

The election should have taught them a lesson that Americans want the parties to work together. Barack Obama won’t get everything he wants, but neither should the House Republicans. Time to put the American people above party or ideology.

Steven M. Clayton, Ocean, US
