Six former members of the Senate and House of Representatives talked about ways to end hyper-partisanship in Congress. Topics included the congressional schedule, comity among members, partisanship at the congressional committee level, the role of the president in bridging disagreements, electoral and redistricting reform, public input and social media, and the budget process. The panelists took questions from audience members, Twitter, and Facebook.

“Can Congress Work in an Era of Hyper-Partisanship?” was part of the first of a series of “National Conversations on American Unity.” It was the inaugural event of the Bipartisan Policy Center’s Commission on Political Reform, held at the Ronald Reagan Library in partnership with the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and USA Today. close
