    Utah elected a Democrat which was also a vote for the left.

    Yes, good luck working with Mitch MConnell, who seems to place protecting Trump from embarrassment above his duty to govern the country, or his concern for the welfare of over a million people who are being affected by this needless & callous shutdown, some of whom may go hungry, lose their homes, or perhaps even their lives (if vital services are compromised).

    Good luck working w/a president who constantly waffles back & forth on issues, frequently gives no clear policy direction, & who frequently makes deals, then folds like a burrito when a little radical base pressure is applied to him; & whose idea of dealmaking is to threaten dictatorial power (natl emergency!) when he doesn't get his own way.

    Good luck working in a House controlled by Democrats--and headed by a very savvy & experienced leader, Pelosi, & with a Freedom Caucus that only seems to care abt doing Trump's bidding, & which has shown very little inclination in past decade to do anything but place party over country; who seem to place the blame for all the country's problems on Democrats, immigrants & entitlement programs, while ignoring real issues & potential solutions, & who don't seem capable of compromise.
