|Can we reverse the slide?|
By Byron McNutt
LAST WEEK, Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid sullenly said that when he went to Washington 30 years ago the approval rating of Congress was at 45%. Today, according to the Gallup polling organization, the rating is a dismal 10%, the lowest it has ever been.
We should all be concerned about this. The current state of political paralysis is being called a “crisis of confidence” in this great country. Many are warning that, if we don’t act, our political dysfunction could become permanent.
Reversing this destructive trend is a key to future American progress. Without a change, America will continue losing respect around the world and will suffer further defeats in international competitiveness. We need a sense of shared purpose.If we really want to stop this slide from grace, get America
