Time Take the Next Step

We have a Republican House of Representatives, Senate, and President, but we can’t get things done. I continue to hear why we can’t do stuff, but never a word about how we can get stuff done. As an engineer I spent my life solving problems. When a customer complaint came in I had to find a way to solve the issue. Too many times people would suggest ways to solve the problem, and I immediately listed reasons why the suggestion wouldn’t work. Finally in exasperation, our Executive Vice President told me one day “stop looking at why things won’t work and think of how to make them work.” It was like a light went on and I changed my paradigm. My teams began solving problems we considered impossible before. I consider that phrase to be one of the most significant pieces of advice I ever got, and I wish Mitch McConnell, and Paul Ryan would hear the same.

What is the next step for Republicans? If elected leaders┬ácan’t learn how to cooperate with the President then we the people must find people who will, and elect them to replace the losers now in place.
