— by on October 9th, 2017

“The GOP’s transformation into the tax-cut party changed the rules of the game, and put Democrats on the defensive. To win back the party’s reputational advantage on the economy, the Democrats would be wise to stop playing the GOP’s game.”

Molly Michelmore is an associate professor of history at Washington & Lee University and the author of “Tax and Spend: The Welfare State, Tax Politics and the Limits of American Liberalism.” Her opinion piece, “Republicans have none of the ingredients necessary for tax reform,” was published in The Washington Post on October 2, 2017.
