Additional Information

Long-time Washington insiders Norman Ornstein and Thomas Mann join us to discuss why they believe that Washington is not working for the American people and who is responsible.

Ornstein, a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, writes a weekly column for Roll Call called Congress Inside Out and is an election eve analyst for CBS News.

Congressional scholar Thomas Mann is a senior fellow in governance studies at the Brookings Institution. Both are authors of the best-seller It’s Even Worse Than It Looks: How the American Constitutional System Collided with the New Politics of Extremism.
