The U.S. Senate, once known as “the world’s greatest deliberative body,” is broken. Using the filibuster as a cudgel, a conservative minority has hijacked the chamber, preventing passage of popular legislation and much-needed democracy reform. In his critically acclaimed new book, Kill Switch, longtime Hill insider Adam Jentleson shows that many of the greatest challenges of our era — partisan polarization, dark money, a media culture built on manufactured outrage — converge within the Senate. And he makes clear that without serious reform, we face the prospect of permanent minority rule in America.

This event is produced in partnership with New York University's John Brademas Center.

Speakers:
- Adam Jentleson, Public Affairs Director at Democracy Forward; Author, Kill Switch: The Rise of the Modern Senate and the Crippling of America Democracy
- Victoria Bassetti, Fellow, Brennan Center for Justice
