Bipartisanship refers to the ability of political leaders from different parties to work together to achieve common goals and pass legislation. In the United States, bipartisanship has been an important part of the political process, but it has become increasingly difficult to achieve in recent years. Historically, there have been many examples of bipartisanship in the United States, including the creation of the Marshall Plan after World War II, the passage of the Civil Rights Act in 1964, and the establishment of the Environmental Protection Agency in 1970. However, in recent years, the level of bipartisanship has decreased, as political polarization has increased, and the divide between the two major parties has grown wider.
Despite these challenges, there are examples of bipartisanship that are still happening in the United States. In recent years, there have been some successful bipartisan efforts on issues such as criminal justice reform, infrastructure, and disaster relief. Some examples of successful bills passed with bipartisan support are the CARES Act (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act) during the COVID-19 pandemic and the First Step Act that aimed to reduce recidivism and prison population.
Ocoee, has caused a scar to a culture of people who still call Ocoee home and love it, but how can they forget what happen to others who look just like them. With that happening and how far we have came (still ways to go), working, living, playing and just enjoying life together we know we can work together as one unit. We can not allow a political party nor a color of one skin to continue to keeps folks apart. We are all one. I have a great plan of action that would be the step in the right direction.
