Comments: This book details the political courage necessary to go against party doctrine and compromise on a campaign promise, for the betterment of the nation. While raising taxes in the 1990 Budget Agreement is largely credited with losing Mr. Bush the election in 1992, the tax cuts and fiscal package of 1990 were considered vital to the economic success of the 1990s.
