Brownback: U.S. needs another Ted Kennedy

How can Congress reach more bipartisan agreements? “We need Ted Kennedy,” Gov. Sam Brownback told Yahoo! Finance. Brownback, who worked with Kennedy (in photo) when they were both in the U.S. Senate, noted how Kennedy would reach across the aisle and work through problems for the good of the country. Brownback said the person most likely to fill that role now is Vice President Joe Biden. One reason Washington seems so disturbing, Brownback said, is that problems are worse than they’ve been for a long time. “There are no good solutions,” he said.
