Re "D.C. divide means that both parties need to negotiate" (Viewpoints, Oct. 10): The stalemate in Congress is easy to solve. If the Republicans are so sure that "Obamacare" will not work, then let it take effect. Then if it fails like they say it will, they will be able to point their fingers and blame the Democrats.
But I think the real reason they don't want it to be implemented is that it will work and the next presidential election will be a walk in the park for the Democrats.
