Interview: Jeff Birnbaum

The Institute for Lifelong Education at Dartmouth is asking a provocative question in their annual summer series: Is Congress any longer relevant? One of the speakers addressing that issue is Jeff Birnbaum. He writes frequently about Congress in his Washington Post column “On K Street”. He spoke with VPR’s Mitch Wertlieb and says Congress can do many things well, but there are currently forces at play keeping it from doing so.
