Overcoming Political Gridlock and
Restoring American Prosperity
Congress has rejected every sensible plan for reforming taxes, entitlements and federal spending. Most lawmakers clearly prefer to battle over our fiscal and economic problems rather than solve them.
How, then, do we avoid a fiscal crisis and promote long-term prosperity?
We need to assemble a group of prominent citizens who will negotiate a fiscal and economic plan that will benefit Americans at every socio-economic level -- and those prominent citizens will then have to persuade voters of all kinds to back their plan. With enough voter support, lawmakers pursuing reelection would likely endorse these measures as well.

The Center for Collaborative Democracy can help your community find constructive solutions to its most divisive issues.
If your city or town is struggling with a long-standing controversy, we can help organize a group of community residents who will be in the best position to negotiate a practical agreement.
If your town council or school board has been struggling with chronic problems, we can help your community reorganize its town council or school board so that it will be better equipped to develop fair, intelligent solutions.
If you are a member of a city or state legislature that is deadlocked over a crucial issue, we can help your legislature form a task force that will be in the best position to craft a constructive solution.
We have found that virtually any group of people can resolve a controversial issue if they assemble the most “appropriate” group of representatives. By “appropriate,” we mean that everyone involved can point to at least one representative as someone they trust to speak for them on the issue at hand.
