During the Obama era, Republicans campaigned on promises to restrain federal spending and repeal Obamacare.

Tax cuts or higher levels of military spending aren’t necessarily inconsistent with a broader effort to rein in the long-term debt, as long as they’re met with a dramatic strategy to restrain entitlements and other nondefense spending. But that’s not what Republicans are doing.

“When the Democrats are in power, Republicans appear to be the conservative party. But when Republicans are in power, it seems there is no conservative party,” Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., one of the early Tea Party senators, observed in a Thursday night senate floor talkathon against the spending deal. “The hypocrisy hangs in the air and chokes anyone with a sense of decency or intellectual honesty.”

When Republicans, given power, are consistently growing government and adding to the debt, it’s time to stop saying they’re abandoning limited government principles. The reality is, they do not actually have any limited government principles. Their priorities are lower taxes and higher military spending, and they are willing to accede to growth in entitlements and other government programs if that is what it takes to secure their first two goals. This is shortsighted, of course, because their failure to grapple with reality inevitably means the nation will one day face both higher taxes and severe military cuts. If the Tea Party, for all the disruption it caused, couldn’t change this dynamic, nothing ever will.

The next time Republicans seeking office start yammering about the need to restrain government and curb deficits, we should remember the adage of the last Republican president to cut taxes, increase military spending, and expand entitlements: “Fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again.”

This has to be one of the worst budgets I have ever seen in my life. McConnell and Shumer - that says it all.  Angry

Terrible deal. Trump doesn't have to sign it. He isn't going to get any credit anyway. All we will hear is how there was no DACA deal included.

I'm not too clear on what this deal includes.  It only funds the government through March 23rd, but raises caps on domestic and defense spending for 2 years.  So what happens next month when more funding is needed?

There seems to be no talk of reducing spending.

We on this board could come up with a plan for it.  So could they. Got to keep funding citizens of other countries and other gimmes.

The same thing that happened last night, another battle.  At least we got the military funded.

Fund the military, SS and the VA.  Allocate funds for infrastructure. Cut everything else. Zero foreign aide to other countries. Enough is enough! Our friends seldom stand beside us and our enemies laugh at us.

Why am I not surprised?  Wink Now we'll hear how it's all part of his master plan. Undecided


Where's that Republican promise of reigning in spending that so many ran on?

Not a penny for the wall.....Republicans want to lose the midterms then they can start impeachment proceedings and be done with him once and for all.
