The Republican Revolution 10 Years Later: BUSINESS AS USUAL,
This review is from: The Republican Revolution 10 Years Later: Smaller Government or Business as Usual? (Paperback)
This anthology of essays attempts to surmise the legacy and progress of the Republican Revolution of 1994, the Contract for America, and the Republican legislative agenda. The GOP did make progress in welfare reform, but where the accomplished that feat, they marginalized it, by filling the void with billions for frivilous spending and subsidies. This anthology features contributions from Newt Gingrich and Dick Armey.
The Republican Congress failed to cut spending sufficiently to coincide with tax cuts. Budget deficits inevitably mean more tax hikes in time, however, discrete. Almost a decade after the 1994 Republican Revolution, the GOP has caved in, capitulated, and these last few years under the Bush administration have taught me that a Republican President doesn't check a Republican Congress, and vice versa. They really only care about holding onto power, so it is "Business as Usual."
