Political theorist: Newly enacted laws need a period of immunity during which they can be repealed only if circumstances are dire. This is because the short-term consequences of any statutory change are likely to be painful since people are not accustomed to it, while its longterm benefits are initially obscure, because people require time to learn how to take advantage of it.

Which one of the following principles, if valid, most helps to justify the political theorist’s argument?

(A) Whether a law should be retained is independent of what the voters think its consequences will be.
(B) Whether a law should be retained depends primarily on the long-term consequences of its enactment.
(C) The repeal of a law should be at least as difficult as the passage of a law.
(D) The short-term consequences of a law’s repeal should be considered more carefully than the short-term consequences of its passage.
(E) The long-term consequences of the enactment of a law should be more beneficial than its short-term consequences.

IMO E

prethink: if the long term consequences are for more good than the short term consequences , than the low should not be appaled else should be appaled

(A) Whether a law should be retained is independent of what the voters think its consequences will be.---irrelevant
(B) Whether a law should be retained depends primarily on the long-term consequences of its enactment.------does not affects conclusion
(C) The repeal of a law should be at least as difficult as the passage of a law.--incorrect
(D) The short-term consequences of a law’s repeal should be considered more carefully than the short-term consequences of its passage.---it does not affect conclusion
(E) The long-term consequences of the enactment of a law should be more beneficial than its short-term consequences.---correct, same as prethink

I think that the correct answer is B. The issue with E is that, while justifiably saying that long-term consequences must outweigh short-term implications in order for the law to be enacted, it does not mention the repeal of the law. The repeal of the law is mentioned in the conclusion if the argument, which, in my opinion, necessitates that the repeal of the law be mentioned in anything that would strengthen the argument at hand.
