Luncheon – Difficulty of Managing Congress by Congressman Jim Cooper
July 19, 2016 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
About Presenter: Congressman Jim Cooper
Jim Cooper was born and raised in Tennessee, and he has represented Nashville in Congress since 2003. He and Martha, his wife of over 31 years, live in Nashville and have three children.
In Congress, he’s known for his work on the federal budget, health care, government reform and military policy.
A moderate Democrat, he is the policy co-chair of the fiscally conservative Blue Dogs and member of the centrist New Democrat Coalition. A national columnist called him “the House’s conscience, a lonely voice for civility in this ugly era” and a “tart-tongued moderate” who “seeks bipartisanship on fiscal matters and other issues in a polarized political climate.”
A graduate from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Cooper earned a B.A. in history and economics as a Morehead Scholar in 1975. He received a B.A./M.A. in politics and economics as a Rhodes Scholar from Oxford University in 1977, and a J.D. from Harvard Law School in 1980.
