Washington, D.C. — On Wednesday, September 27, the Center for American Progress will host Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO), in an armchair discussion touching upon the range of incentives that distort Congress and feed dysfunction, from the effects of money in our elections to revolving door politics, growing partisanship, and other factors. Sen. Bennet is a leader in fighting to reduce the influence of special interests and make the U.S. government responsive to the priorities of the American people, and he will also share observations about why Congress is broken and the importance of leadership from elected officials and citizens to correct course.
Most Americans believe that Washington’s priorities no longer reflect their own. Instead, they see powerful special interests driving the national agenda and distorting the public good. Left unchecked, these interests threaten the proper function of representative democracy. Americans demand leadership from Congress to deny these interests from having an undue influence on their government. They deserve a functioning government capable of addressing our nation’s growing challenges.
