Barnicle: The System is Fractured

“Jeremy used the phrase ‘palpable sense,’ and I would pose this to you: That you get a palpable sense that everybody out there this morning gassing up their automobiles on their way to work or grocery shopping or whatever -- they don't care that the Republicans control the House, the Senate, and the presidency. What they do care about, then you get a palpable sense of this, is that the entire system is broken, and it poses a threat to people of both parties. Any incumbent, I think, is in dire danger going up into the election year of next year because of the sense that the system is fractured and people on both sides of the aisle do very little to heal it,” comments Morning Joe veteran columnist Mike Barnicle during a conversation with The New York Times’ Jeremy Peters about conservative groups pushing a campaign for tax reform.
