The Senate reached a bipartisan agreement to end a dispute over disaster relief spending yesterday, ending yet another threat of a government shutdown. This week, CNN is taking an in-depth look at why our political system is so broken.
In a letter to his clients, chief global economist for The Economic Outlook GroupĀ Bernard Baumohl wrote that the single issue stalling economic growth "is the failure of governing in Washington at a time when so many Americans are hurting. The political food fight between the White House and Republicans will certainly not hasten economic growth nor create a single private sector job."
Baumohl and Maya MacGuineas, president of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, join Carol Costello on American Morning today to weigh in on why the broken government is so dangerous and how the dysfunctional political system is impacting Americans.
