Washington Wire

January 1956
New Republic;1/2/56, Vol. 134 Issue 1, p2
The article focuses on various political issues in the United States. There is always a temptation to overestimate the U.S. party discipline and to imagine that parties have evolved to a stage of responsibility found in other democratic countries which they haven't. Oil and gas industries effect U.S. politics to a large extent. While the price of industrial products has been rising steadily for three years the price of food has been going down. These counterbalancing factors give a level cost of living except for the farmers. U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower came back to office after surviving from his heart attack and is likely to run for a second term.
