Why Gridlock Rules Washington and How We Can Fix It

Healey Family Student Center Social Room, 6:30pm - 7:30pm


In today’s hyper-partisan world of politics, entrenched gridlock in Washington, and endless tense exchanges on cable news networks, should Americans believe that we can in fact find common ground on the most pressing issues we face as a nation? And is there still time for today’s elected leaders – Republicans & Democrats – to inspire all generations, from millennials to retirees, with a spirit of thoughtful, hard-fought, consensus-driven bipartisanship?

Former Congressmen David Jolly (R-FL) and Patrick Murphy (D-FL) say the answer to both those questions is yes! Join them for a conversation moderated by Jill Lawrence (Commentary Editor for USA Today) on how we’ve reached this point in Washington and how our nation’s leaders can find opportunities for bipartisanship to build political consensus.
