Public Policy Feature
In politics, we are currently experiencing a “new normal” where the Democrats claimed the advantage in the 2012 Presidential election and Republicans now have an advantage in Congress and the Senate. As a result, the U.S. is experiencing a divided government, with a widening chasm between right and left in the halls of the U.S. Capitol. As a result, it can be a tremendous challenge to effectively make progress on any significant level on any given issue.
Polsinelli’s Martin Frost, who spent more than a quarter-century representing North Texas in the U.S. House, earning a reputation as a thoughtful moderate and the former chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, examines how political differences can be bridged in his just published book The Partisan Divide: Congress in Crisis, co-written with former Republican Congressman Tom Davis and journalist Richard Cohen.
