Fixing government: Anna Holmes on getting politicians to communicate

Perhaps one of the most frustrating elements of Congressional infighting is the heated rhetoric and miscommunication between parties.

    On getting politicians to communicate ?
    They are communicating through twitter, facebook, tv media, i-pad, etc..
    We are living in an information super highway. Why do we need communication courses when we have all the latest communication device and advanced technology. We have everything we want.
    We do not need any special communication courses. What we have now is sufficient to communicate with mass media. The question is whether the politicians will follow through what they promised to do.
    They should practise what they profess. That is where many of us experience a breakdown in communication.
