Carte Blanche Spending

Ever notice that the GOP is only concerned about spending when the Dems are in the White House?

Since Trump took office in 2017 the GOP in Congress has given him carte blanche on spending with seldom a challenge.

Ever since he took office I have been saying that the GOP would back to the days of their biggest stupidity….deficit hawks.

I have written about this idiocracy in the past……https://lobotero.com/2010/06/24/cut-spending-now/

In January 2021 the new president will take office and the gutless GOP will once again start their constant whining about federal spending……

Republicans are preparing to re-embrace their inner deficit hawk after greenlighting big spending bills under President Trump

GOP senators say they expect to refocus on curbing the nation’s debt and reforming entitlement programs starting in 2021, as the Congressional Budget Office estimates that the debt has surpassed the size of the American economy. 

“I think that’s kind of getting back to our DNA. …I think spending, entitlement reform, growth and the economy are all things that we’re going to have to be focused on next year and, yeah, I would expect you’ll hear a lot more about that,” said Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), the No. 2 Senate Republican.

he shift could pose a significant headache for a new Biden administration that will need GOP support in the Senate to move its agenda. It is also likely to complicate efforts on a debt-ceiling deal.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) is poised to become the chairman of the Budget Committee if Republicans keep the Senate. He said he wants to create a new commission to propose ways to reduce the deficit and address the country’s debt.

“I think we’ve got to understand that we’re going to be raising the debt ceiling in perpetuity if we don’t find a way to bend the curve,” Graham said.

Of course they will return to their stupidity.

It is all they have is opposition…..for they have NO plan to move this country forward.

I told you to watch for this…..and here it is……
