Why Gridlock Rules Washington and How We Can Solve This Crisis
- This event has passed.
In the hyper-partisan world of politics and the entrenched gridlock in Washington, can Americans trust that there is still time for today’s elected leaders to inspire all generations with a spirit of thoughtful, consensus-driven bipartisanship?
Former members of Congress Patrick Murphy (D) and David Jolly (R) believe so. During their town hall tour, they pull the curtain back on how we got here and shine a light on the reasons why Washington has fallen into stalemate and dysfunction. Along the way, Murphy and Jolly discuss opportunities for bipartisan leadership while demonstrating that even in times of disagreement on solutions to our country’s most divisive issues, those disagreements need not divide us.
