"The very first year under the budget deal, Washington will spend nearly a quarter trillion dollars more than it did in 1994, when the new Republican majority was elected to turn the tide." -- U.S. Rep. Chris Cox, R-Ca.
What a sad commentary on the leadership of a Republican Party supposedly dedicated to reducing big government and big spending!
Our constitutional republic is designed for partisan differences and rigorous legislative discourse on the direction and scope of public policy. So when will the party of limited government be more aggressive when confronting the party of bigger government?
