Robert Kaiser, Washington Post Associate Editor

What is truly going wrong in Congress – literally, what isn’t working – that blocks the whole system and generates such frustration? Robert Kaiser, Washington Post associate editor and senior correspondent, looks at the problem through the lens of the Dodd-Frank Law — the 1500-page regulation that either saved or ruined our banking system, depending on whom you ask. With incredible and essentially full access, Kaiser shows us how things do and don’t get done in Congress. He’s just put it all in a book – “Act of Congress: How America’s Essential Institution Works, and How It Doesn’t.” (Originally broadcast 5-5-13 on The John Batchelor Show)
