Bipartisan Agreement


It is one of the few discussions that had all in attendance in total agreement. There was none of the traditional filibustering or gridlock that is typical during Senate debate over such a hot topic item. The one recurring statement that had everyone in agreement was that even the television show itself has a disclaimer stating that no one should watch the episodes.

This is a historical moment in time. In 2013, the United States government shut down the government including closing the national parks because they could not agree on budget issues. Gridlock is the name of the game on Capitol Hill. For the United States Senate to reach an agreement so quickly and be unanimous in the vote is unheard of!.
