    A question on solving negotiations.

    Imagine if you and I were arguing about something.  There are...say...three main points.

    On points A and B, we completely agree.
    On point C, we disagree.

    Again, WE ALREADY AGREE on points A and B.

    We disgree on C, and I respect your opinion.  Hopefully, you respect my point of view as well.

    Now here's my proposal:  Why don't we just move forward on A and B?


    For the record, yes, I am talking about the Fiscal Cliff.  This is just getting ridiculous...

    (I'm sure there's more to it than I realize.  I humbly request your opinion.)

    Well, yes, we should be able to move on. Remember that I have no idea what points A, B, or C are, but I think it doesn't matter whether or not we agree or disagree on something. It's up to our elected officials to solve the problem at hand.

    Okay, maybe I didn't phrase this one well.  I am genuinely curious to get a serious answer to my question, though.  All answers welcome:-)

    Unfortunately, they can't just move on with A and B because everything with the budget has to be done at once. If your budget is A + B + C, you need all parts.

    I'm fairly sure that Republicans and Democrats agree on something like 90% of the budget. It's that last 10% of the budget that needs to be worked on, but again, you can't have 100% of your budget without that last bit. It is irritating that our government works so poorly, and that representatives are so polarized and politically motivated, rather than productive legislators...

      I feared as much.  But doesn't that imply that once this is done, it can never be revisited again?  Couldn't it just be, "Here's A.  Here's B."

      Then a few months later.  (Or days.)

      "Alright, we realllllly gotta talk about C again, guys."

      Haha the way it works now, no.

      Say a Democrat budget bill has an increase in medicaid spending, and a Republican budget bill does not. Now all of medicaid spending is held up because they need to determine what the spending will be.
