Agree with Dan.
We are way past the point where we have to rein-in spending and restore sanity to our national finances.
The Repubs talk sensible and resolute when campaigning prior to election. But, AFTER every election they quickly return to their preferred modus operandi; don't stand for principles.
Just CUT THE SPENDING, and, NO MORE DEBT INCREASE! If the Repubs can't stand for that, then what good are they?
