Jackson talks about the negative incentives of being in Congress

Charlotte – Today, Congressman Jeff Jackson released a video discussing how the members of Congress who appear the angriest are often faking their outrage. 

In the video, Jackson discusses how the incentive structure for members of Congress rewards members for driving outrage with media coverage and engagement on social media:

“It’s very clear from working here for just a few months that most of the really angry voices in Congress are totally faking it.

“These people who have built their brands around being perpetually outraged – it’s an act.”
