Can we govern?. Part 1
This program with Bill Moyers examines both the disenchantment of American voters and the frustrations of members of Congress as they try to work within the system. Voters say they have heard too many promises, and have seen too few results; politicians say that a sensational press and uninformed voters make it hard to govern. The program features five politicians (former Senator Warren Rudman and representatives Barney Frank, Dave Obey, Susan Molinari, and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen) and their responses to the exasperation of the American people. Originally broadcast as part of the television series Listening to America in 1992.
