Lucas’ Op Ed in Finger Lakes Times

An editorial by DeWayne Lucas, assistant professor of political science, ran in the Nov. 17 Geneva Finger Lakes Times. Titled “Both Parties Face Critical Policy Decisions,” the article highlighted the Democrats and Republicans alternatives to solve the nation’s problems. “President Bush, Speaker Dennis Hastert, and soon-to-again-be Majority Leader Trent Lott, along with other Republican members, have long argued that a tax cut, the disarmament of Iraq, the creation of a Homeland Security Department without union protections, privatization of Social Security, and a host of other policies are in the best interest of the country,” wrote Lucas. “This is their opportunity to prove it and this is where their challenge lies.”
