An Australian Solution to Washington Gridlock?

Post by Bryant on Wed Oct 02, 2013 12:19 pm

Double dissolution

If the House of Representatives passes any proposed law, and the Senate rejects or fails to pass it, or passes it with amendments to which the House of Representatives will not agree, and if after an interval of three months the House of Representatives, in the same or the next session, again passes the proposed law with or without any amendments which have been made, suggested, or agreed to by the Senate, and the Senate rejects or fails to pass it, or passes it with amendments to which the House of Representatives will not agree, the Governor-General may dissolve the Senate and the House of Representatives simultaneously. But such dissolution shall not take place within six months before the date of the expiry of the House of Representatives by effluxion of time.

Since when is political gridlock a necessarily bad thing???

Government's only job, as far as global politice go, is to rule its people. Everything they do puts limits on people. The less gridlock, the more rules/limits.

Seems to me that we need even more gridlock.
