If you thought Washington was dysfunctional now, wait until after the state of the union.
My prediction is that Obama will double down on leftist policies and further alienate Congressional Republicans. He’ll propose more spending (disguised as “investment,” of course), more taxes, gun control proposals that will never pass, etc.
This will cause even more partisan entrenchment, more bad feelings, less cooperation, and therefore will continue our slide into a worse fiscal situation.
