Former Gehl Foods CEO and founder of the Institute for Political Innovation, Katherine Gehl, has 4 myths about US politics to bust. Think the system is broken, as in not working the way it was intended? Think you only have two options? Think politicians are the problem? In a series of videos, Gehl breaks down common misconceptions and misunderstandings about the way our political industry works. These videos challenge the way we talk about our political system, because simply changing the way we think about it will help us understand what is truly wrong with the system. Then, it becomes much clearer what steps we need to take to unrig it.

Myth #1: Washington is Broken

Myth #2: Politicians are the problem

Myth #3: You have to pick red or blue
