The Government You Can't See

THE-DEEP-STATE-HC-HIGH-RES.jpg

Mike Lofgren is by no means the first person to say that our federal government is largely unresponsive to the will of the people. 

But he's one of the few to have spent a good deal of his career working inside the government, most recently as a Congressional budget committee staffer. 

Lofgren's book The Deep State examines the interconnections between people and organizations that lead to decisions far beyond the grasp of the American people.  He visits with the Exchange to follow what he calls the "red threads" of governance.
