The Price of Politics by Bob Woodward offers an insider’s view on how the current political stagnation between Democrats and Republicans has paralyzed Washington. Woodward uses inside sources to give a blow-by-blow account of the budget struggle during President Obama’s first term. The battle then led to the current sequester situation, which is currently affecting Defense, Head Start, and most recently air traffic controllers. It looks like the long lines in airports have led to action on the part of Congress, while innocent pre-schoolers are still left outside the Head Start program and our national defence takes a hit.
