Any of the following describes legacy politics.
1. A political system that favors high dollar donors over serving the people.
2. Politicians engaging in backroom deals designed to reap the most credit for any legislation regardless of the legislation's value to the people.
3. Using discussion stopping labels, such as 'racist', 'bigot' & 'misogynist' to "win" arguments.
4. Pandering to voters while doing little for them.
5. A political mindset that has been discredited by electing non-politicians
Speaker Ryan's Health Care Reform failed because he is stuck in legacy politics mode and the smarter politicians aren't playing along.
