I personally believe it's human nature to move to a more protective stance when anyone feels threatened. And I believe that's what has happened in Congress.I wish the Republicans would move to the Moderate spectrum also. Both parties are so far off center that it is hard to vote for either. I wish we could vote "NEITHER - give me better options".
