It was the latest in the ongoing debate among Republicans about the future of the party. Will the GOP move towards independents and embrace the fastest growing demographics in America, embodied by Marco Rubio? Or, will it seek to satisfy its current grassroots supporters and limited-government activists, embodied by Rand Paul? Will it, can it, do both?
Today, we're featuring a handful of articles from PolicyMic pundits that look at the future of the Republican Party from different perspectives.
3) Frank Hagler looks at whether the sequester is tearing apart the Republican Party.
4) Peter Prime examines the changing demographics of Republican supporters.
5) Douglas Goodman gets into GOP SuperPAC's and how they're influencing the party.
It's one of several themes sparked by the State of the Union speech that we're exploring in-depth this week. Yesterday, we looked at income inequality and featured a great debate between PolicyMic pundits Brian Weidy and Jack Fischl about whether progressive taxation is the best way to address the gap. Please weigh-in with any questions or comments and we'll include them in an end-of-the-week roundup.
