Let’s keep the party lines where they’re at

One more piece of political jargon that drives me nuts, “working across party lines.”

Where does this come from? Do we really have a desire to see politicians working across party lines? If I vote for you, it’s because I agree with you, not the other side of the line.

Is it just me? Am I the only one that feels this way?

    Perhaps I should rephrase. I don’t mind if you work across party lines. However, campaigning to me by saying “I can work across party lines” doesn’t do anything for me. I’ll vote for you because of your political viewpoints, not because you promise to work with the other side.

    I think this mostly comes from the fact that the politicians say they’ll work together and then almost never do. So why bother caring about it?

    I guess I see it differently. I like a politician to look at the bill or act in question, not who sponsored it. I’m tired of the hyper-partisan DC politics that have greatly harmed this nation.

    On the other hand, it’s almost useless for a candidate to promise me anything. I don’t place much value on their promises.
