The Last Word On Democrats & "Fiscal Responsibility"

Courtesy of Ed Morrissey:
We have massive entitlement programs that have careened towards bankruptcy for years. Have Democrats done anything to solve those problems? On the contrary; they spent 2005 and 2006 denying they exist. They want to add more entitlement programs, expand those which already exist, and drag more money out of the private sector to pay for all of these pandering disasters. Then they have the nerve to demand that Americans pay for a tax on one of the few actual functions of the federal government because they can't find $150 billion out of $2.7 trillion to cover it.
Every Republican running for Congress and the White House should make that their fiscal platform plank and spend the next year pounding the Donks into the ground with it. If they do, the GOP might have a fighting chance in 2008 after all.
