The battle over the size and role of government has been raging for decades. Arriving at a critical time, with clashes over limiting government and spending cuts occupying more battlefields than ever, The Struggle to Limit Government expertly chronicles this war’s history, as well as its implications for the future. Samples does not simply point and critique; he also includes extensive prescriptions for improvement. With its political analysis of major government programs, from Medicare and Medicaid to Social Security and taxes, The Struggle to Limit Government is an essential guide to the battles of today and tomorrow.
