Two neighbors plan to shop together, one to furnish the car, the other to pay for the gasoline. Both need a week's supply of groceries. One says, "I vote we steal the groceries, I won’t furnish the car unless we do." The other says, "No, I vote to buy the groceries, I won’t buy the gas unless we do."
One says, "We won’t get anything done unless we compromise, so let’s both buy half and steal half of the groceries." For the general welfare of their families, they both voted for the “win-win” plan: “give a little, cheat a little.” The crime families called it protection. The tea partiers call it constitutional corruption. I call it political compromise.
