About The Book
“Cowardice, corruption, close-mindedness, cruelty — harsh words, but singly or together they explain most of what does or doesn’t happen in Washington. Tens of millions of Americans share a conviction that, as a people, we’re better than this. They share a hope that their government, too, might someday be better than what we have. This book is about that hope as well.” — Senator Michael Bennet Everything Is in Our Hands (a powerful phrase from the conclusion of James Baldwin’s “The Fire Next Time”) is a unique contribution to American political writing. Distinguished Democratic Senator Michael Bennet lifts a veil on the U.S. Senate, and chronicles the dramatic full stories behind five decisions crucial to all Americans, each of which exemplifies the partisan politics that are upending our democracy and the American people.
The highly politicized nominations and appointments of judges at all levels, including the block of Merrick Garland and Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court controversy. The blind shredding of the Iran nuclear deal that undermined our longstanding bipartisan approach to foreign policy. The appalling corruption of money in politics and why it is directly connected to complete inaction on climate change. The recent tax cut that massively increased the national debt as well as financial inequality across the country. The ugly sabotage by a minority in Congress of the bi-partisan plan that would have reformed our immigration policies years ago and resolved the issues we currently face. By revealing how these decisions were truly made — reminding readers what was said, by whom, in what context — and by providing substantive suggestions for ending our hyper-partisan politics, Bennet will inspire Americans of all political persuasions to demand that the winners of political debate be the American people, not one party or the other.
