The Social Security debate
After the titanic confrontations of the mid-1990s, the war between the parties over the proper size and scope of the federal government appears to have fizzled into stalemate. Since the defeat of President Clinton's universal health-care plan in 1994, Democrats mostly have shied away from major new spending proposals. And since a public backlash doomed the Republican budget plan of 1995, the GOP has abandoned the drive to significantly shrink the government by eliminating programs and agencies. Through Clinton's second term, the two sides have essentially agreed to divide the tax windfall pouring into the federal Treasury without making major structural changes.
