American politics is becoming ”profoundly dysfunctional”.
Turnbull laments state of US politics
April 4, 2012
MALCOLM Turnbull has sharply criticised the corrupting power of money in the US and described America as looking ”like a country that is barely governed”.
In an interview with The Monthly, published today, the former Liberal leader and member of Tony Abbott’s shadow cabinet says American politics is becoming ”profoundly dysfunctional”.
He attacks the Republican idea that the budgetary situation can be improved by cutting the taxes of the wealthy as ”just bizarre”, and describes the right-wing Tea Party as extreme, reactionary and radical.
