85. With all that said, it is not as though they managed to reverse 60 years
of growth in the government's social welfare programs. They merely halted it, cut a few, but overall it largely remained intact. The way I view it is that we have gone through a conservative era and it will soon end since it has lasted basically since 1968 and a liberal trend will take hold again with the natural ebb and flow of American politics. However, there will not be anything approaching revolutionary change. If either party pushes it, they will be defeated.
