Pragmatism? That's What The Gop Has Been Delivering...

Your "Memo to Congress: Get going" (News: Analysis & Commentary, Nov. 16) was long on interpretation but short on evidence. It states that voters were "signaling" that they want "pragmatic" policies and "consensus" politics. That's exactly what Republicans have been delivering the past two years, and it cost them 12 seats in the House. And as for your claim that voters were signaling they wanted out of the impeachment "morass"--please tell us in which races impeachment was a big issue. Does it even occur to the pollsters and pundits that the Republicans may let impeachment proceedings run their course because it is the right thing to do?
