Newsletter: Promising the Moon, Ignoring Broken Government

(Sept 13, 2019) Most Americans think Washington is broken. But if last night’s debate is any indication, the Democratic candidates don’t seem to have gotten that memo. Here’s why rebooting Washington should be a pillar of any successful campaign: “Promising the Moon, Ignoring Broken Government.”

The one reference to the bureaucratic morass was this response by newcomer Andrew Yang: “Now, I am Asian, so I know a lot of doctors, and they tell me that they spend a lot of time on paperwork, avoiding being sued, and navigating the insurance bureaucracy. We have to change the incentives so instead of revenue and activity, people are focused on our health in the health care system.”
