Midterm Elections Review and Policy Outlook

Cato Sponsor eBriefing
Tuesday, November 13, 2018
3:00 – 3:30PM EST

Featuring David Boaz, Executive Vice President of the Cato Institute; moderated by Caleb O. Brown, Director of Multimedia.

What do the midterm election results mean for liberty? David Boaz knows that the impact of shifting partisan majorities is rarely a clear‐​cut good or bad. What new opportunities for positive change could come from a Democratic House? Will the expanded Republican majority in the Senate help with the confirmation of originalist judges? Are we heading towards an impeachment battle?

While the new alignment on Capitol Hill offers some potential for improvement, there is always the concern for bipartisan “compromise” at the expense of the American people. Republicans and Democrats might get together and agree to grow government and spend more, in which case the gridlock that commonly accompanies divided government might be preferable.

Join us as David Boaz answers these and other questions in his breakdown of the election results and how they will impact Cato’s work going forward.

Please send any questions, comments, or other feedback for Boaz to respond to during this event to Brian Mullis at bmullis@​cato.​org.
