The Partisan Divide: Congress in Crisis.

Join us as former Congressmen Martin Frost (D-TX) and Tom Davis (R-VA) talk about their book The Partisan Divide: Congress in Crisis. During their combined 40 years in Congress, Martin Frost and Tom Davis were the field generals for their respective parties, each serving two terms as chair of the Democratic and Republican House campaign committees. Now they have joined forces in an effort to save Congress from itself. According to the authors, Congress is incapable of reforming itself without a good kick in the seat from the American public. Frost and Davis, with great insight and skill, along with a wealth of anecdotes and photos, dissect the causes of legislative gridlock and offer a common sense, bipartisan plan for making our Congress function again. Uniquely qualified to examine the conflict in Washington, Frost and Davis also offer recommendations for key issues such as gerrymandering, redistricting, campaign finance reform, federal deficits, and the plausibility of holding "jungle primaries" before national primaries.
