In their new book, congressional scholars Thomas Mann and Norman Ornstein examine partisan politics in the U.S. government. The authors contend that the level of “hyperpartisanship” has resulted in a dysfunctional political process that is marked by adherence to political party platforms above all other costs. Mr. Mann and Mr. Ornstein offer several solutions to the stalemate, from expanding the voting public and promoting an active public and vigilant media to reforming the election process. They were joined in a discussion, moderated by E.J. Dionne. The panelists responded to questions from members of the audience at this Brookings Institution event, “America’s Dysfunctional Politics: Why Now? What Can We Do About It?” close
