“America’s economic and social foundations are crumbling. The promises that generations of us grew up believing in – that hard work could support a family, that elected officials could work together to solve problems, that we all would pass better lives than we inherited on to our children and grandchildren – no longer hold.
This is the story of the nation leading into the 2012 elections, and the one National Journal will tell in a series of narratives over the next nine months. We’ll introduce you to the people wading through the rubble of America’s broken foundations – and the people working to piece them back together.
We see the stories as a starting point for a conversation about how to solve America’s great problems, which we’ll foster on our website, over social media, and through live events. We hope you’ll join us. This American story doesn’t have to end with a broken dream.”—
