Orlando Sentinel’s Central Florida 100: GRIDLOCK

, , Leave a comment

The Boulder, Colo., shooting rampage once again highlighted the perennial battle over gun legislation, where one side of the aisle lines up in favor of legislation and the other side lines up in favor of the 2nd Amendment. In short order, the discussion centers not on resolution, but on party loyalty and, for an evenly divided Senate with 60 votes needed to break a filibuster, no stray vote – let alone 10 – will go unpunished. It’s a national system spawned by an intractable two – rather than three — party system and by closed – rather than open – primaries. Alas, the gridlock will continue.
