Hyperpartisanship has gridlocked the American government Congress s approval ratings are at record lows and both Democrats and Republicans are disgusted by the government s inability to get anything done In It s Even Worse than It Looks Congressional scholars Thomas E Mann and Norman J Ornstein present a grim picture of how party polarization and tribal politics have led Congressand the United Statesto the brink of institutional failure In this revised edition the authors bring their seminal book up to date in a political environment that is more divided than ever The underlying dynamics of the situationextremist Republicans holding government hostage to their own ideological anti government beliefshave only gotten worse further bolstering their argument that Republicans are not merely ideologically different from Democrats but engaged in a unique form of politics that undermines the system itself Without a fundamental change in the character and course of the Republican Party we may have a long way to go before we hit rock bottom
