Ned Witting is a political junkie with a businessman’s perspective. In Political Gridlock, he looks at Congress through the eyes of an efficiency expert and considers why it isn’t working the way it should. He doesn’t concern himself with whether it produces tax reductions or affordable health care; he investigates why it produces so little of either. In Political Gridlock, he explains how our political process has invisibly disenfranchised moderates in favor of MoveOn.org liberals on the left and Tea Party conservatives on the right.
The book examines factors that are unrecognized and ignored by political pundits but that empower political extremes, allowing them to block constructive legislation. It is also the how-to manual on how to reboot our government. It evaluates the obstacles to effective governance and suggests solutions for each. In plain language, Political Gridlock outlines the steps necessary to reclaim Congress and get government working again. It is a book Americans have been waiting for.
