"Abel looks back through history at conservative policies that have failed to live up to their promise and surmises that a progressive agenda is better for Americans today...while Broken Promises of the Conservatives might attract readers who are unambiguously liberal, it does little to win new members to the cause."
-BlueInk Review

Synopsis

"Broken Promises of the Conservatives is intended help the reader understand the conservative ideology and look at how their promises have been kept. Our country is faced with a series of very serious issues that require solutions. Our huge budget deficit, tax reform, immigration, background checks to purchase guns, funding shortfall of Social Security and Medicare, rebuilding of our infrastructure, educating our children and the creation of living wage jobs to mention a few. This book will help the reader look at the conservative approach to these issues and document how they have dealt with each of them. The sources that have been used are primarily official United States Government Agencies such as the Department of the Treasury Bureau Public Debt, the CBO, OMB, the Department of Labor and various historical records of the United States Government. In addition studies from Harvard and Brown Universities and The Brookings Institute have been cited.

The author, Gene P. Abel brings a successful and diverse educational and professional background to his factual analysis of the conservative policies. Mr. Abel has a formal education that includes a bachelor’s of science degree and a master’s degree in business administration. He has 30 years as a highly successful business executive in both the private and public sectors overlaid with his 30 years service as a commissioned officer in the United States Army and Army Reserve. Mr. Abel graduated as a Distinguished Military Graduate from Penn State and spent 5 years on active duty as a Regular Army Officer and 25 years as an Army Reserve Officer. He completed the Army War College in 1985 and was awarded the Meritorious Service Medal on two occasions. He had such diverse assignments as nuclear weapons officer to finance officer. He retired as a Colonel in 1993.

He is listed in Who’s Who in the World and Who’s Who in Finance and was certified for Senior Executive Service with the Federal government. He has written other books as well as scores of analytical articles which have been published across the country. Mr. Abel participated in grassroots politics in the 1970s as a Republican committee person and chaired the campaign of his state representative. He has a keen interest in our political process and is glad to offer the facts about how the promises of the conservative have been kept. Mr. Abel has avoided the politically connected organizations and think tanks to present the facts not the political spin we hear every day on cable news and in print."
