Who’s the Real Fiscal Conservative?

Let’s review.

President George W. Bush championed the passage of nearly $2,000,000,000,000 in tax cuts for rich with not a single dollar in spending cuts to offset the lost revenue. The entire amount is borrowed from our children & grandchildren, who’ll be left to pay the interest & deal with the tab.

He was the standard bearer of a party that purports to represent fiscal conservatism.

President Barack Obama championed the passage of a health insurance reform package. According to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, the legislation will cut the deficit by $130 billion in its first 10 years and an incredible $1.2 trillion in the decade after that.

According to Republicans, he is a fiscally irresponsible socialist.

I have no idea why voters still don’t trust Republicans. Do you?
