Lawrence Lessig on Obama’s Role in Congressional Reform

An opinion piece by HLS Professor Lawrence Lessig: … [Congress], the core of our democracy, is politically bankrupt. And it was therefore appropriate, indeed, essential, that the president make its reform the catalyst for any real “change.” If this indeed was to be “change you could believe in,” changing Congress had to be part of the plan. … Yet three years into this administration, we have yet to see the plan. In Obama’s first year as president, reform of Congress was nowhere on his agenda.
