Washington Insight

During my twenty-five years in Washington I worked in both the Congress and Executive branch.  Though I pay attention to what goes on in Washington little did I realize since coming home in 1993 how much both have changed.  Doing my morning reading I found two articles that provide a current insight into the Congress and “the fourth branch.”

The first looks at how the cultural of Congress has changed over the last three decades.  The writer had an opportunity in 2009 to go inside to watch how the Dodd-Frank bill became law.  It is a bit long but well worth the read.  Here is a link.

Our founders wanted three branches of government but the bureaucrats had other plans.  The author goes into how the administrative state damages our democracy.  Here is a link.
