“Fiscal responsibility”?

President Clinton left GW Bush with a $230 billion dollar SURPLUS. Some economists worried we were going to pay down the debt TOO FAST. Bush left Obama with a $1.3 TRILLION dollar annual deficit. Even though Obama cut that deficit by more than half, Republicans were screaming bloody murder for 8 YEARS about the outrageous Obama deficits and the national debt.

Now, having done not a thing to address our deficits/debt, in their first major piece of legislation, Republicans are going to add $1 TRILLION, at least, probably a lot more, to the national debt in order to directly transfer that borrowed money overwhelmingly to the wealthiest individuals and most profitable corporations
