John McCain, A Call for Compromise in Public Service

Title

John McCain, A Call for Compromise in Public Service

Description

Former senator John McCain, in a speech dated July 25, 2017, criticizes the winner-take-all approach of modern politics. Rather, McCain emphasises in his speech  the need for a "Government designed for compromise." McCain emphasizes in his speech that members of Congress ought to take a more conciliatory and cooperative approach towards each other to best serve the American people, as opposed to an absoluist, hyper-competitive approach. McCain emphasizes that public servants should learn to trust each other, and to be willing to seek help from across the aisle, as partisan bickering makes congressional action slow to impossible.

McCain said he would be returning to work when Congress begins a new legislative session next week.
