These past few weeks, President Obama has been on what’s been coined the ‘charm offensive,’ reaching out to Republicans in the hopes of finding some common ground to solve the fiscal problems facing our country.
It's all part of the President's plan to build a "common-sense caucus."
It would be a remarkable accomplishment if Democrats and Republicans were actually able to reach across the aisle, because lately, when it comes to the economy, the Right and Left have only been able to agree on one thing: The forced spending cuts of sequestration were a pretty "stupid" thing to do.
But if it was really so stupid, why did our lawmakers allow it to happen?
