Is Government the Problem or the Solution? Politics has always been about who controls government. Now it's about the value of government. Since the days of Ronald Reagan, Republicans have been promising tax cuts and "smaller" government. But "progressive" Democrats say don't forget -- strong government led America out of the Great Depression, creating history's most prosperous nation. We hear how the battle is playing out today, on the road to the White House -- and in Topeka, Kansas.
