Fixing government: Walter Kirn on creating a virtual Congress

Are the members of Congress out of touch with the very people they represent? Author Walter Kirn weighs in on this question in this installment of our ongoing series, Fixing America. Kirn wrote “Up in the Air,” the novel that later became a movie, about a man who made a career out of laying people off. Kirn offers his radical solution on how to fix Congress: Let’s make it a virtual one, he says, instead of the real thing.
