I was checking out the game code, and found some possible improvements. As I’m not able to send images to this forum, I’ll be as detailed as possible in my post.
During stage 1 of the negotiations for the liberal solution to the debt bill, the 3rd option "The debt is so bad that we don’t need to worry about explaining ourselves to the average American let’s just tell people this is necessary to prevent a sovereign debt crisis.", which is unlocked by having a terrible debt, doesn’t improve the negotiation progress variable. Not sure if WAD, I think not.
If choosing the 1st option: "The Ford administration will reach out to the contacts it made in local government in it’s efforts to clean up crime and corruption after the Watergate hearings to see if they can help." during the 2nd stage of negotations for the moderate healtchare bill, the text “*set neg_progress +2” appears on screen.
The 3rd option during stage 1 of the negotiations for the conservative economic bill: "The economy is not doing well and we just not to hammer on that if we want to convince people to get these tax cuts passed.", the option unlocked by having a bad economy, doesn’t improve the negotiation variable. I think it’s not WAD.
The 3rd option during stage 1 of the negotiations for the moderate debt bill: "The Cold War has mostly thawed and the simple fact of the matter is that we can cut down on our massive military expenditures somewhat to help balance the budget without risking national security too much at this point.", the option unlocked by having a high security score doesn’t improve the negotiation variable. Not WAD, I suppose.
That’s all I’ve found for now. Hope it helps!
