What the mid-term elections tell us this year (as well as during past years) is that the electorate as a whole does not like policies on either extreme of the political spectrum. When the President’s party over-reaches or pushes policies too far to the left or right, the mid-term elections have a way of pulling back towards the middle. This is an example of democracy at work. The elected officials in Congress and President Obama would be wise to try to reach compromise where they can and enact policies in a united manner for the good of the country. Hopefully, both sides realize this as the country needs the President and Congress to work together at this critical time for our country.
