Deficit-Cutting Politics and Congressional Elections
Gary C. Jacobson examines the effect of electoral politics on U.S. budget policies in 1990 and the effect of the unpopular October budget legislation on the 1990 congressional elections. He finds that members of both houses were acutely sensitive to the very real electoral risks faced in trying to reduce the deficit by raising taxes and cutting programs. The legislation passed only because a great majority of members were safe enough electorally to absorb the political damage without risking their careers.
