Author Ira Shapiro has captured sixty years of Senate history in his trilogy of books documenting the dangerous decent of what should be our more deliberative, collegial government body. Mr. Shapiro’s most recent installment is The Betrayal: How Mitch McConnell and the Senate Republicans Abandoned America. It serves as a call to action. Yes, The Senate’s intransigent refusal to pass legislation that helps Americans is appalling. But what can we, the people, do about? Ira Shapiro has thoughts and ideas.
