Now is a pivotal moment for the millions of Americans who recognize that there is something terribly wrong with our government. That is why a coalition of over 80 civic action groups, called the Bridge Alliance, is kicking off its educational campaign #HealthyGov.

Congressional approval barely escapes the single digits, and many Americans think government dysfunction is the nation’s biggest problem.
There are a myriad of problems that contribute to the broad systemic failures of our government, and in order to mold a government that is both functional and representative of the electorate at large, we need to look at the big picture.
