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 more difficult when the popular diagnoses of their causes and the proposed cures are wrong. This interactive discussion, featuring former U.S. Sen. Ted Kaufman, and Professors Jeffrey Peck and Christopher Schroeder, dispels the myths and sheds light on the realities of governing in the current social, political and economic climate.
