Having watched the Republican presidential candidates in their debates so far and having read a fair bit of their campaign material on line, I get the distinct feeling that most of them have no clue about fiscal matters. Most also vehemently complain about the Democratic candidates as “Tax & Spenders”, but almost all the Republican candidates are even more irresponsible with the government coffers than the Democrats.
As a RINO, that’s what most upsets me about the Republicans – almost all of them are simply fiscally irresponsible. At least the Democratic candidates are honest enough to say that we’d have to pay for the stuff they’re proposing. Almost all the Republican candidates are saying that they want to spend lots more money, and cut taxes at the same time. I guess we should call the current Republicans “No Tax & Spenders“. I think that’s much worse. Talk about your people who want free stuff! The Republicans want “free stuff” and they want to get paid to take it.
