Solutions not theories.
Political progress not political posturing.
Instead of the constant jockeying for political advantage, in What Works, author and columnist Cal Thomas focuses on what promotes the general welfare, regardless of which party or ideology gets the credit.
Thomas probes and provides answers to questions like, Why must we constantly fight the same battles over and over? Why dont we consult the past and use common sense in order to see that what others discovered long ago still works today? And why does present-day Washington too often look like the film Groundhog Day, with our elected officials waking up each day only to repeat identical talking points from previous days, months, and years?
Without letting politics, or ignorance, get in the way, Thomas urges readers to pay attention so that politicians can no longer pick their pocketsliterally or intellectually.
What Works is about solutions, not theories. Its about pressuring political leadership to forget about the next election and start focusing on the needs of the people who work hard to provide for themselves, send their tax dollars to Washington, and want to see the country achieve something of value like it has always done.
Cal Thomas has been observing the dysfunction in Washington for thirty years in one of the most popular syndicated columns in the country. He writes the Common Ground column for USA Today (with his liberal Democrat friend, Bob Beckel) and regularly appears on Fox News. He began his career in radio-TV-and print at the age of 16. 2014 marks the 30th anniversary of his syndicated column.
