Partisan politics harmful to resolving current issues

Alaskans had a wonderful opportunity last November when they elected an independent for governor. Apparently the legislature didn't get the memo that this is a new era and one where we can be different than Washington, D.C.

Maybe he hasn't checked the U.S. Constitution but it clearly states that Congress votes and the President doesn't vote on legislation.
