What’s NOT Wrong With Congress

The Boston Review–which I’ve been reading for years, not just for the last week, and I encourage everyone to check it out–has a spirited forum about what’s wrong with Congress. I’ve been traveling, so it will be a few more days before I’m able to write a few posts here at Rooted Cosmopolitan in response to that discussion. But in the meantime, the folks at the Boston Review were generous enough to invite me to contribute to their forum. I argue here that Congressman Jim Cooper’s idyllic view of the Tip O’Neill era doesn’t address what made that era idyllic for Democrats: they had dominate majorities and over decades without changes the Republicans had acquiesced to continual control by the Democrats.
