Column Lacks Compromise

Dear Editor,

Howard Schwach’s December 2 Rockaway Beat column is typical of him, and The Wave. He laments the lack of a ‘center,’ the absence of compromise, in political Washington D.C. Yet, several paragraphs later he uses the phrase “smarmy Republican Congressman.” Howard, God help you, that expression precisely explains the lack of compromise!

Remarkably, I agree (for the first time ever) with the solutions advanced: ban lobbyists and throw the bums out. We cannot do the first until we do the second. That process began in the 2010 congressional elections, and will continue, big time, in the 2012 election. The demise of the Democratic Party as it is presently constituted is imminent.
