Professor Goldman comments in a news analysis about Republicans's accomplishments before mid-term elections

Sheldon Goldman comments in a news analysis about how Republicans, who control both houses of Congress and the White House, have little to show for their dominance and appear to be happy to coast to the mid-term elections without pushing for more legislative victories beyond some deregulation and the tax cut bill. Observers say this is because the Republicans are splintered in their aims between what donors and the establishment wants and what voters want so what appears to be unified government is anything but. Goldman says, “It’s a crisis of leadership, crisis of confusion, and intraparty rifts. By all rights, they should have been able to accomplish a lot more.” (Vice, 4/25/18)
