Senator Kit Bond addresses the Missouri House, telling Representatives the best work is done when Republicans and Democrats work together. A true veteran of the political wars, Bond tells members they need to cooperate with one another, even with elections looming. Bond told of when he, a Republican, became Governor he had to learn to work with Democrats who controlled the Legislature. He says together they moved Missouri forward. Bond says partisan squabbles in Washington have blocked needed legislation on immigration, tax reform and homeland security.
