Maybe if President Obama had reached out to the GOP back in 2010 and incorporated several of their requests — tort reform, interstate insurance competition, tax cuts — he would have had more bipartisan support and we would not be seeing the reaction by the GOP now.
It is called "tone from the top" and Mr. Obama is getting back what he started and continued for the past four years. If he had acted as president of us all and included some GOP requests we would not be in this adversarial situation today.
