You Republicans like to pass out the cake and ice cream but will whine when it comes to taking the medicine.
It was you Republicans (2001-2007) who spent more than the previous set of Democrats . They increased pork barrel spending from 3,000 to 14,000 projects a year, billed to the national credit card.
You Republicans have engaged in a eight year social engineering project in the Middle East that costs $120 billion a year and may well last another 100 years, billed to the national credit card.
You Republicans have added another layer of entitlement spending that costs $50 billion a year called Medicare Prescription, billed to the national credit card.
