This week represents not only the start of a new calendar year, but also the start of the new 114th Congress. The last Congress was often viewed as a prime example of Washington gridlock — a time when partisan bickering replaced statesmanship. It was frustrating for all of us, especially members of the House of Representatives who passed almost 400 bills that died on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s desk. These were good bills, many of which had strong bipartisan support, but because they had originated in a House that was controlled by Republicans, these bills did not even merit a vote in the Democrat-controlled Senate.

When a president vilifies the other party, we can be sure gridlock will follow. But when the president expresses a willingness to find common ground, the other party often reciprocates.
