He was fed up with a Congress whose lawmakers spend more than the country can afford, allow serious problems to fester, and abandon policies they know are right merely because pollsters tell them theyre unpopular.

Having worked tirelessly for a dozen years to reform profligate government spending from the inside, Penny decided to leave and to pursue change from the outside. In Common Cents, Timothy Penny tells us just how badly damaged the institution of Congress is—and what we, as voters, must do to repair it. Penny details dozens of ways that individual voters can make a difference, including providing guidelines for evaluating candidates and for making sure elected officials hear voters voices and respond.
