All week we’ve been exploring the mechanics of a broken legislative body in our series, “Frustration Nation.” We wrap up the series with a look at the solutions to government gridlock. Can we move away from filibusters? Should we rehaul our election rules? Should we get rid of the Senate altogether?
We hear some creative ideas from Nate Persily, professor of law and political science at Columbia University and Melissa Harris-Lacewell, associate professor of politics and African American studies at Princeton University.
Let us know what you would do. How would you amend the U.S. Constitution to make government work?
