Bipartisanship makes for better tax reform

William A. Galston

William Galston, senior fellow in Governance Studies, discusses the lack of bipartisanship in Congress’s recent tax reform deliberations, compares it to the bipartisan tax reform enacted under President Reagan in 1986, and explains why legislation passed on a bipartisan basis is not only more effective, but also more sustainable.
