While some consider Republicans’ dogged obstructionism under Obama to be a proven, effective model for Democrats in the Trump era, this overlooks an essential difference between the two party’s agenda: Conservatives, per their name, have a much easier time saying “no.” An escalation of partisan warfare in Washington would have serious, long-term consequences for both parties, of course. But Democrats’ progressive agenda would suffer much more for it.No kidding. Republicans are generally comfortable saying "no" to government initiatives, Democrats most often want to say "yes." Obstructionism, whoever is saying it, is a "no."
