Sen. Jerry Moran, R-Kan., told the Wall Street Journal that Republicans should be eager to discuss GOP ideas to promote economic opportunity. "It's very beneficial for us to talk about the things we are for, the things we care about, and most importantly how they impact the lives of people around the country," Moran said. Although "there are legitimate philosophical and policy differences. . . we ought to do everything we can to avoid this being the political show that is trying to categorize Republicans and Democrats in ways that is only useful for partisanship," he also said.
