This makes me pretty sick to see the party of fiscal conservatism become the party of "Hey big spender!" Who will balance the Democrats and their spending ways? No one. Here are some links on Bush's spending ways and some nice op-eds about them.....
The Cato Institue shows how Bush has now increased spending more than even LBJ. The father of the Great Society still did not increase spending as much as Bush.
The Wall Street Journal's Peggy Noonan calls Bush out for the big spending and how this really is not helping. I thought the 2004 election showed if you pleased your base you won elections. I guess Bush and Co forgot who put them in power.
This CNN article from back in 04 talks of the spending problem Bush had in his first term.
Why does Bush try to win moderate votes with increasing spending. Black voters and single moms still will not vote for him or the GOP. It isn't going to change with a few bills.
This article points out more big spending. As I like to quote from the past, power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely....or something like that.
