In Defense of Congress

In Defense of Congress

by Fred R. Harris

Editorial Reviews

Former Senator, presidential candidate, and leading figure in the Democratic party, Harris seeks to rehabilitate the US Congress from its widespread reputation for being inefficient, obstructionist, and sometimes criminal. He gives a feel for what being in Congress is like by surveying the pay, perks, personnel, accountability of members, and the cost of the Congress. He then considers the institution as a whole, arguing that it is responsive to the public will, but also suggesting some reforms. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
