The Breadth of Brokenness

The Government We Deserve
December 18, 2008

Abstract

The breakdown in the financial markets, our huge budgetary mess, and multiple government scandals have only highlighted the depth of our government's problems. Recently, I noted that the required governmental reforms are so extensive that President Obama will find it difficult to succeed by taking one-off approaches to each of the nation's problems rather than addressing them in a more unified way. Here I strengthen my case by turning from the depth to the breadth of brokenness of government.
