Approval ratings for Congress have sunk to historic lows and the majority of Americans have lost faith that their elected representatives will work together to find solutions to the countryÂs most pressing challenges.
Rather than lamenting the ideological differences between our two political parties, the Bipartisan Policy Center embraces the diversity of ideas. The BPC is the only Washington-based think tank that brings together former elected and appointed officials, business leaders, academics, and advocates who represent different perspectives, but who stand united in their resolve to work for consensus-based solutions.
With the 2016 elections on the horizon, THE NEXT AMERICAN CHAPTER rises above partisan rhetoric and the echo chamber of the media to serve as a timely bipartisan blueprint for the 115th Congress and 45th president. Through principled compromise, this guide offers actionable proposals on a host of critical issues, from building a modern infrastructure system, assuring affordability and choice in health insurance, protecting American security in a changing world, reforming our immigration system, and restoring public confidence in the institutions of government.
The bold, common ground solutions presented in THE NEXT AMERICAN CHAPTER are a must read for policymakers and all who care enough about our countryÂs future to stop taking sides and to discover the path forward together.show more
