Don’t Trust The Republicans

For those who are fed up with President Obama’s reckless fiscal policies, here’s a warning:  don’t trust the GOP.

Have tea partiers forgotten how President Bush expanded spending faster than any president since LBJ?  Or do they just not care?

Further proof that Republicans are not dedicated to limited government comes via Cato’s Tad DeHaven.  A former Senate staffer, DeHaven summarizes a Republican meeting where pleas to cut spending fell on deaf ears.  This, in light of former GOP Sen. Trent Lott’s recent recommendation that the Republicans “co-opt” any newly elected senators into the pork-barrel, big-government Washington establishment, doesn’t inspire any confidence in the Republican Party to do the right thing.
