For progressives, do you think our political process works right now?

With public opinion polls low for Congress (independent of which party is in power) and support for the President seemingly at his base level, no real substantive work being done, and the only progress at all on our national debt is an approach that the President insisted on and now says is the worst way possible to cut our deficit (sequester), can anyone stand up and cheer for our political process?

So, for you progressives, if you agree that the political process is broken, why do you think transferring more of our life into the political arena will lead to good results?  If the IRS is engaged in political shenanigans now, how much more dangerous could they be if they not only have all your financial records, but also are also involved with your health care?

Comment please…
