We all long for the days when you Republicans showed us how fiscal responsibility was the way government should be run.

The temporary tax cuts put in place to help the economy out after 9/11 are going to expire and revert back to the levels of the 1990's If I remember right the rich folk were doing pretty dam well back then. When the republicans took over the the national debt was about 2 trillion. When Obama took over it was about 9 trillion, an increase of 7 TRILLION dollars. If that is what passes these days for republican conservative values I'm glad I bailed from that party 15 years ago.

Considering the incredible deficit spending of a Republican President & a Republican "Rubber Stamp" Congress for most of the last 8 years (financing Nation Building & no-bid contracts in Iraq, etc) Does the Republican Party (or Rush Limbaugh...or Fox News) have the Bona fides anymore to lecture us on their "Suddenly Remembered" fiscal responsibility?
(It's not just me asking that obvious question, but a majority of American voters)
