Having skirted budget restraints and approved nearly $300 billion in new spending and tax breaks before leaving town, Republican lawmakers are now determined to claim full credit for the congressional spending. Far from shying away from their accomplishments, lawmakers are embracing the pork, including graffiti eradication in the Bronx, $277 million in road projects for Speaker J. Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.), and a $200,000 deer-avoidance system in New York.
The borrow-and-spend Republicans are the most fiscally irresponsible group that has EVER been in Washington. In one way, the Republicans are right: Governments are inherently fiscally irresponsible.
But THIS crowd makes the Democrats look like penny-pinchers.
