Tennessee politics behind the scenes
This is nonsense. There was no balanced budget during Speaker Newt Gingrich. The debt increased more than $800 Billion during that time. The Republicans controlled Congress and the Presidency from 6 years during the last decade and the debt skyrocketed.It is true that there are a handful of Republicans who are fiscally prudent, but they are the minority of their party. Republican leadership recently punished some of the fiscal conservatives. Both parties are doing what they can to run this country off a cliff. Just because the Republicans are a bit slower, doesn't mean they haven't done the same thing.
Tona said it better than I could have. Both parties agree on one thing - they want to spend YOUR MONEY! Republicans were in control for the majority of the last decade and the size of government quadrupled! This is not a party issue. This is a "Washington DC" issue.D.C.
