Reeher talks taxes, the economy and mid-term elections with The Hill
December 22, 2017
Grant Reeher, professor of political science and director of the Campbell Public Affairs Institute, was interviewed by The Hill for the article "The Memo: GOP seeks lift from Trump economy." According to Reeher, the deficit-raising element of the tax-reform plan will not necessarily hurt the GOP in the mid-term elections.
“No one’s ever lost an election on the deficit or the debt,” Reeher said. “If the economy continues to rebound more strongly and voters start focusing on what they are getting out of the tax cut, that can be a powerful combination. To me, it’s not clear that we are headed for the [Democratic] tidal wave that some folks are predicting.”
