That part is fine. But is used to be that some Republicans or some democrats would break ranks and vote outside party lines in order to pass legislations.The system isn't broken. It works as designed. It takes more than a narrow majority to effect major change.
Now? No. No democrats are voting for republican legislation and no Republicans are voting for Democrat legislation and the system that was once built on compromise has all but ground to a halt.
Executive orders and reconciliation are the only way things get passed in Washington and that is a broken system.
