Is the Broken Branch on the Mend?
On the day the 110th Congress return from its August recess, September 4, The Brookings's Mending the Broken Branch Project hosted an event to assess Congress's performance to date and what to expect in the coming months. Panelists included Thomas E. Mann, Senior Fellow, Brookings Institution, Sarah Binder, Senior Fellow, Brookings Institution, and Norman J. Ornstein, Resident Scholar, AEI. You can view of video of each panelist's presentation and download a copy of the event material from the below links:
The Mending the Broken Branch Project examines policy-making and oversight activity in the 110th Congress as well as action on key issues to provide a complete picture of the legislative branch's efforts to mend itself. The project's origin can be traced to Mann & Ornstein's The Broken Branch: How Congress Is Failing America and How to Get It Back on Track (Oxford UP, 2006). [JH]
