Reviving Progressive Governance
Polarization and hyper-partisanship are destructive to the fabric of our nation. Without a working political process, we cannot hope to overcome the many challenges our country faces in the coming century. We support reforms that improve our system of elections and campaign finance and that empower the disenfranchised middle.
Rather than reflexively defending government as it is, we also believe in reforming government so that it is efficient, effective and relevant to the concerns of ordinary Americans. We support decentralizing power, breaking down outdated bureaucracies, and innovating in the delivery of public services, particularly in education and social policy. And we believe in creating a fiscally responsible path for the future that balances spending and revenues to maximize economic growth and future opportunity.
