Spending Schmending....

GOP Abandons Even a "Pretext" of Fiscal Responsibility

Both chambers manage to pass budget resolutions and ignore the need to reduce spending. Worse yet, GOP leaders rally against an effort to re-introduce 'Paygo' (New spending must be paid for by spending cuts elsewhere in the budget). Of course the GOP pushed Paygo in the 1990's and it helped bring the budget into balance, but fiscal prudence is so last century.
