(Conservative Review) -- Much as with the border invasion, Senate GOP leaders Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn don’t believe our unprecedented spending is a problem. They only perk up when the Trump administration tries to combat either of those problems. Then, they say they care about the problem but just oppose the administration’s solution, of course, without offering their own.
In just the first eight months of this fiscal year, our government has spent $3 trillion. That is $255 billion more than at this time last year and nearly half a trillion more than during the first eight months of FY 2016. In other words, congressional Republicans have signed off on spending that is 18.2 percent higher than under the final year of Obama’s presidency, when Republicans were railing against the unconscionable rise in debt.
Kind of sounds similar to the trajectory of the border numbers, huh? Talk about progress.
