9780761833260: Pouring Liberal Wine into Conservative Bottles: Strategy and Policies

Liberals and conservatives will never agree on all things. In his new book, Laurence Seidman does not pretend otherwise. Instead, as the central theme of the book, Seidman identifies several key issues on which policy agreement might be possible. The basic strategy is to take a conservative "bottle"?a policy consistent with conservative values?and pour liberal "wine"?sufficient funding?into it. Using evidence of successful government actions such as the earned income tax credit (EITC), which was conceived as a work bonus by conservatives and was sufficiently funded by liberals, Pouring Liberal Wine Into Conservative Bottles is a critical, and hopeful, examination of public policy. In chapters focused on issues such as health insurance, Social Security, tax reform, and the environment among others, Seidman outlines possible areas of compromise.
