Don’t give political parties labels

I have been reading a lot about the “bad” Republicans not wanting to extend unemployment benefits and how the “good” Democrats want them extended to help the unemployed.

Let us all be clear about this. Most want to extend unemployment benefits.

The only difference is that some want to pay for it while others want it added to the $17 trillion national debt.

When will this country be able to have an honest debate about such issues without injecting partisan politics into the discussion?
