U.S. Senator Alexander speaks during the Reuters Washington Summit in WashingtonBy Thomas Ferraro WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The normally divided U.S. Senate moved forward on Wednesday with a new, bipartisan agreement designed to ease partisan gridlock. I’m optimistic,” said Republican Senator Lamar Alexander of Tennessee. “But I believe in not counting your chickens until they hatch.” “The goal here is to get off to a small but positive start with bipartisan bills, so that we can get back to legislating and tackling bigger issues in a responsible way,” said Democratic Senator Charles Schumer of New York. “I hope it works.” Alexander and Schumer took the lead in recent months to craft the agreement to help the Senate set aside its partisan fights so that it could debate, amend and pass legislation.
