The article criticizes the fear demonstrated by U.S. Republicans of the prospect of a fiscal stalemate between the administration of President Bill Clinton and Congress as of 1995. It assesses the implications of the reluctance of the Republican Congress to stick with its agenda of shrinking the government for the presidential election in 1996. It contends that the looming budget crisis is fought among the Republicans themselves. It comments on the reluctance of the Senate reluctance to take a high-risk political strategy.
