If Democrats and Republicans really, really, really tried, what might the next Congress accomplish in the best interest of America? William Niskanen, Carl Pope, Stephen Lilienthal, and Caroline Fredrickson have a few ideas.
• Ease Burdens on Business The stereotype is that Democrats are less open to the concerns of American business than are Republicans. The surprising — indeed, encouraging — reality is that the new Democratic majority in Congress may be ready to relax some new corporate regulations that have proved too burdensome, argues William A. Niskanen. • Reduce Global Warming After the 2006 midterm elections, the House and Senate are undoubtedly greener. But Carl Pope says that a closely divided Congress could take its cues from the encouraging progress recently made in statehouses around the country. • Cut Waste, Fraud, Abuse Stephen M. Lilienthal argues that members of the new congressional majority might want to glance across the aisle to seek pointers on how to rein in federal spending. • Restore Privacy and Habeas Caroline Fredrickson says that for five years, Congress has allowed the Bush administration to shred the Constitution. However, there is encouraging news of legislative proposals that indicate both sides of Congress want to restore basic freedoms.
