Will Congress Embrace a New Spirit of Cooperation?

Structural reforms of Congress are undoubtedly needed, but to be effective they must be coupled with a renewed spirit of bi-partisan cooperation. Catholic teaching extols the value of such cooperation:

“Cooperation, even in its less structured forms, shows itself to be one of the most effective responses to a mentality of conflict and unlimited competition that seems so prevalent today. The relationships that are established in a climate of cooperation and solidarity overcome ideological divisions, prompting people to seek out what unites them rather than what divides them.” (Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church, par. 420)
