Together, we bring common sense to American politics in four steps.
Our members identify the issues that present the most significant challenges to the federal government.
Our staff develops a thorough policy brief on each issue.
Each member reviews the brief to which they’ve been randomly assigned and weighs in on the policy questions.
We champion the policy solutions that gain a two-thirds consensus among our members in the Congress and at the White House.
WHY IT WORKS
WE RECOGNIZE THAT PEOPLE ARE LESS POLARIZED THAN POLITICIANS
As everyday citizens we’re not nearly as divided left and right as most elected officials. We can give needed political support to Congress’s practical problem solvers.
WE LEVERAGE THE FOUNDERS’ WISDOM
The Founders’ defense against runaway partisanship is a robust separation of powers. Separation of powers creates an affirmative imperative to find and champion broadly supported solutions. We can do this.
WE MOVE PAST THE PROBLEMS OF THE TWO PARTY SYSTEM
An unprecedented partisan rift between the major political parties makes our efforts to move past partisanship more important than ever.
