Hi - I am confused on the set up of a political capital arg on the neg and on the aff. What would the link and internal link be for neg and for aff? Could I cut cards saying political capital is key for immigration reform or generically for any policy? Or should it be that political capital is bad or eroding congressional power etc. I'm cutting a politics core file.

Political capital is a term used to describe the influence, credibility, energy, focus, and time that the president uses to rally Congress around particular policies. The theory of political capital argues that it is quantifiable, finite, and "zero-sum." The basic politics DA would say, "Trump is using his political capital to push X through Congress. The plan, a controversial immigration reform, saps that political capital, undermining the legislative momentum necessary to pass X. X is good because impacts."
