Why can't Congress cooperate?

Jules Witcover ("GOP's unchanging game plan: Gang up on Obama," Feb. 24) understands that once a president has been elected, Congress and the Supreme Court are supposed to interact with the White House in a respectable and cooperative manner. This does not mean they have to agree but do have to find cooperative means of solving the problems on a national level.

Our representatives and senators are elected to help run the country, meaning bipartisanship teamwork to handle issues facing America. They have been running amok for many years, promoting party politics at the congressional level while being paid by our tax dollars and with great benefits. Currently, we have become the laughingstock of the world, and the dissension gives global terrorists great encouragement to attack, knowing that we are so ill-led.

So much time and so many dollars have been wasted when so many very serious issues face us and our security.
