The Myth of Republican Fiscal Responsibility: Who Is Really Growing the National Debt


Buffy said...

I've known that for years. The red states whine about "fiscal responsibility" and high taxes. Meanwhile they take in more in federal taxes (via benefits and whatnot) than they pay out. The blue states--the ones that get bashed continuously as being "fiscally wasteful"--are the ones who carry the red states. They take in less, sometimes far less, in taxes than they pay out. Then of course there's the way the national debt rises drastically under the allegedly "responsible" Republicans and falls under the "tax and spend" Dems. Conservatives are full of it on financial matters, just like everything else.
