It just doesn't stop, they hypocrisy of the Republican party and their representatives in Congress. Democrats put forth an amendment to reinstitute paygo rules for government spending. Any new proposed program, in other words, had to be paid for by cuts or by raising revenue. This rule was in place during the Clinton administration and Clinton left office with the government having a $200 billion surplus.
Republicans whine all the time about how we should be fiscally responsible. But the truth is, Republican presidents recently have been the biggest spenders and created the biggest budget deficits by wide margins compared to Democratic presidents.
Every single Republican in the Senate voted AGAINST the Paygo rule. You have to ask yourself, do Republicans have any credibility when it comes to the country's fiscal matters? I say no.
