The 1995 budget talks between President Bill Clinton and the Republican-controlled Congress over how to reduce America's spiraling deficit ended in political deadlock and a partial government shutdown. Republicans were demanding deep cuts in taxes and spending including Medicare; President Clinton wanted smaller cuts in spending and none at all in taxes. Sound familiar?
