The federal government is dysfunctional. "Standing on principle" is richly rewarded, while "compromise" has become a dirty word. Congress is viewed as incapable of resolving major issues while it lurches from crisis to crisis. Fixing these fundamental problems is made all the more difficult because many of the popular diagnoses of their causes and the proposed cures are wrong. This panel, featuring former United States Senator Ted Kaufmann, and Professors Jeffrey Peck and Christopher Schroeder, will dispel the myths and shed light on the realities of governing in the current social, political and economic climate.
