The Los Angeles Times published Dean Tom Campbell’s op-ed, “Budget Like It’s 1995,” in which Dean Campbell advised Republicans in Congress to remember the lessons of the Gingrich House and compromise. In the opinion piece, Dean Campbell drew from his own experience in Congress. “Republican leaders in Congress do not want to harm the economic recovery,” wrote Dean Campbell. “They must also understand that shutting down the government would be suicidal for their party. It would be the GOP misstep Obama needs to rekindle his chance at reelection.” Read Dean Campbell’s opinion piece, as well as his thoughtful response to a reader’s reply.
