Is there a villain in the House? And Senate?
In the May 12 Washington Post linked below,, columnist Ezra Klein makes the argument that while Democrats allow dissent, Republicans insist on partisan loyalty and rigid adherence to the party line. www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy … story.html
Is Republican intransigence tearing the country apart?
Are you kidding? First of all, consider the source, the Washington Post, not exactly a conservative newspaper. Secondly, the Democrats are the party that pulled every string, including essentially bribing senators and changing the Senate rules to pass Obamacare.

There are 100 villains in the Senate and 435 in the House..... Interesting? That's the same number as the total membership of each (For you purists....I'm aware of the DC and Puerto Rico reps!!!!)
While you didn't ask.... I'll point out that there is also a main villain in the white house at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue... and he has a cadre of OTHER villains that he calls, variously, his "staff" and "cabinet"......
