Compare and Contrast

The above links may seem to represent two items of seemingly unrelated procedural ephemera. My perception is that both concepts of "senatorial courtesy" and "desk drawer veto" should be abandoned. Both entities serve as a potential tool for restraining dialogue and debate to advance personal and party-based agendas. These concepts in my opinion seem to discredit the need for a system of valid and constructive discourse from "both sides of the fence" to establish national and state policies. I will not follow these examples.
