Republicans have NOT lost their way! Not even a little bit.
Republicans NEVER reduce spending. NEVER.
What they DO when they are in charge, is to cut taxes for the rich and for patriotic multinational corporations without reducing spending. This results in the deficit exploding. This in turn skyrockets the national debt.
When they are not in charge, they complain bitterly about excess spending, and claim that spending is the sole cause of the deficit and the debt.
No one can identify spending reductions by a Republican president in the last 50 years. Because it never happened.
It’s one more ‘issue’ for Republicans to weaponize and LIE about.
BTW, Carmen, there is plenty of room for you in the Democratic party. Actual conservatives, who accept facts and don’t LIE about everything would be welcome. Someone who claims to want a balanced budget would be able to understand the role of taxation, including payroll taxes and sales taxes and their effect on people. They may want rich people to pay a lower tax rate than middle class people, but at least they would admit it and would not have to LIE about it.
