As many people do, I make lists of my to-do projects. Then I assign priorities to those lists. Why can’t the executive and legislative branches of our government do the same?
The executive branch by way of the State of the Union speech essentially has laid out their idea of to-dos. Now, if Congress would do the same setting their lists alongside the list of the executive branch the American public could better understand the position of each on items such as jobs, gun control, budget, education, etc.
Some items might even be compatible and both branches could accomplish something. It is refreshing to cross off an item from a to-do list. Try it.
