Boomerang: Clinton's Health Security Effort and the Turn Against Government in U.S. Politics
Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: In the 1992 American election campaign, health reform, a popular issue which Bill Clinton and the Democrats concentrated on, became the focus of the most concerted attack on government in recent American history. A year after it had been introduced to general acclaim Clinton's compromise plan lay in ruins. This account, by a prize-winning social scientist, examines the changing terrain of US politics and public policy. Drawing on contemporary documents, media coverage and confidential White House strategy memoranda, it offers insights into the way the Health Security Bill inadvertently became a perfect foil for anti-government mobilization. According to Skocpol, its enemies found it easy to distort while its supporters failed to marshall their forces at a critical time. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE_book_new_0393039706
Über diesen Titel:
Rezension: The defeat by the Republicans of President Clinton's sweeping health care initiative was a critical turning point in modern American politics. A disaster for the Democrats, it led to the Republican conquest of Congress in 1994. Theda Skocpol rejects the prevailing view, which lays most of the blame at the feet of Hillary Rodham Clinton, offering the real culprit as something called "Reagan's revenge." She believes that the tax cuts of the Reagan years gutted a host of once-effective federal programs, generating widespread public mistrust of government. An incisive look at Clinton's defeat on health care, Boomerang also provides a fresh, and at times frightening, perspective on the legacy of the Reagan years.
