Is the US political system broken?

At least one well-informed commentator thinks so. In a piece in today’s “Guardian”, Michael Tomasky writes: “Our founders wanted a system that moved slowly. Do they ever have it. In fact, we now have a system that barely moves at all. Watching American politics through British eyes, you must be utterly mystified as to why Barack Obama hasn’t gotten this healthcare bill passed yet. Many Americans are too.” You can read my description of the American political system here and my comparison with the British political system here.
