Michael Golden's Unlock Congress is a memorable cry from the heart about the dysfunction in Washington. In this beautifully written, highly readable, and notably well-researched book, Golden points the way toward real-time steps for congressional reform. Whatever your partisan affiliation or political philosophy, you will be stirred by the realizable vision of Unlock Congress. -- JAMES STROCK Author, Theodore Roosevelt on Leadership
In his analysis of the "money flood," Michael Golden has taken one of the most complex and challenging public policy issues of our time and distilled it into a clear and compelling narrative that should stir the public to action. A great summary of a debilitating disease afflicting our democracy. -- MARK MCKINNON Co-founder of Mayday PAC and former advisor to President George W. Bush
In Unlock Congress, Michael Golden artfully takes us on a historical journey, offering readers a clear understanding of the dysfunction that is crippling Congress. When the essential needs and rights of the masses are controlled by the self-interest of a few, systemic change is the only alternative. Golden's gem is a must-read for political junkies and all Americans who seek the bright futures that our founding fathers envisioned. -- LOU WEISBACH Former Chairman, Democratic National Committee Jefferson Trust
If you want proof that the system is broken, this well-researched book will convince you. If you are already convinced, but want practical solutions, Mr. Golden delivers on that score as well. -- DR. WOODS BOWMAN Professor Emeritus, DePaul University, School of Public Service
Unlock Congress is essential reading for students and educators, especially those who have lost their faith in our government and are looking for ways to improve it. Golden offers real answers and inspiration. -- JACQUELINE VON EDELBERG Author, How to Walk to School: Blueprint for a Neighborhood School Renaissance
