Advanced Praise for Contract to Unite America
There is a flood of books that talk about what's wrong with politics in America. Finally, here's a book that's devoted to real solutions. Neal Simon walks us through how we can restore our institutions and our confidence in the future right now. It's all impactful. It's all doable. And most have bipartisan appeal.
-Frank Lutz, pollster and communications advisor
Neal Simon is insightful, funny, and solutions-focused. In Contract to Unite America, he illuminates a path forward for politics--one fostering cooperation and new approaches to problem-solving. We enthusiastically recommend it.
-Katherine M. Gehl and Michael E. Porter, authors of The Politics Industry: How Political Innovation Can Break Paritsan Gridlock and Save Our Democracy
This book is for every American who is fed up with dysfunction and partisan paralysis in Washington and looking for how to fix it. Neal has the real-world experience running for office as an independent, with some amazing lessons learned. The ideas in Contract to Unite America ought to be required reading for congressional orientation.
-Glenn Nye, former member of Congress and CEO of the Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress
We are in a dark moment in American politics and the only way out is to fix the system itself. There are so many terrible rules and laws governing how we elect people and how Congress operates that make pragmatic problem-solving impossible. In this book, Neal offers a thoughtful and urgent prescription for how to repair our democracy before it's too late.
