November 19, 2015, The Wall Street Journal

Former Senator Jon Kyl is quoted by The Wall Street Journal in an article discussing the obstacles each party will have to overcome if their big initiatives, like minimum wage and income tax rates, are brought before Congress. According to Sen. Kyl, the internal Republican party divides about fiscal-policy may change if a Republican President is elected, making it easier for the party to overcome obstacles created by Congress. However, Kyl continues by saying, “It doesn’t matter which party is in control of the White House. Their members in the Congress have a very strong magnetic pull to support that administration.”
