Patty Murray is the U.S. Senator from the state of Washington and Chairman of the Senate Budget Committee. And Patty Murray’s view of how democracy should work is evidently very much like my own. For years I have advocated giving citizens a much more active role in determining how our country is run. Certainly, with the internet and other tools at our disposal, that is an increasingly possible scenario, and it is one in which our neighbors in Canada are already actively engaged.
Now, thanks to Patty Murray, you can contribute your voice to the national budget debate here. You can also use the site to closely monitor what is happening in the budget debate, and I encourage you to do so, regardless of your political affiliations (as I will be doing).
