Mann and Norman J. Ornstein, but now it is a broken branch, damaged by partisan bickering and internal rancor. The Broken Branch offers both a diagnosis of the cause of Congressional decline and a much-needed blueprint for change, from two experts who understand politics and revere our institutions, but believe that Congress has become deeply dysfunctional."--Jacket+-+6199260465166111ocn755699560book20120.23Mann, Thomas EIt's even worse than it looks : how the American constitutional system collided with the new politics of extremismTwo leading experts on Congress outline recommendations for ending obstructionist tactics and artificial barriers to compromise, suggesting specific institutional restructuring measures while calling on the public and media to work with government to correct problems rather than perpetuating acerbic campaign cycles163810ocn156873542file20070.47Fortier, John CSecond-term blues how George W.
