Agencies can be coerced as well as persuaded to fall in with their 'clients" view of good public policy. Yet such arguments can be taken too far by neglecting the importance of party politics. Democratic Administrations have been quite likely to appoint people more sympathetic to environmental protection or labour unions to key positions, while the Republicans have appointed quite consistently officials sympathetic to business.

A more vigorously conservative wing of the party, in contrast, sought to 'roll back' the advance of 'big government' by reducing government expenditures on welfare, the rights of unions and government 'interference' with business through regulation.
