It wasn’t long ago that fiscal responsibility was a mainstream Republican rallying cry. This was not lost on Senator Rand Paul who briefly shut the government down Friday morning over spending increases.

  1. I consider myself a socialist, but even I can respect a Republican for being an actual Republican, for embodying the idea of conservatism, and not being a hypocrit.

  2. It's not a reversal. Republicans intentionally run up the deficit and then scream about it once democrats get into office so that democrats have to cut spending and have worse economics during their term.

  3. Republicans have historically had the worst management of the economy but, for some strange reason, have maintained a reputation for being more fiscally responsible than the Democrats. Very strange indeed.

  4. it's not surprising, republicans add more to the deficit and by extension the debt by a large margin than do democrats, and have since reagan. it's an interesting testament to the media system that the reverse is commonly thought to be true.

  5. Why am I, at 68, feeling comforted that so many morons in government know less than I do about everything? And why am I having a drink? Vonnegut said – “True terror is to wake up one morning and discover that your high school class is running the country”. And I’m not that keen on people who quote quotes. So it goes.

  6. Rand Paul 2020 they don't showing on this video that the democrats is the same as republicans watch rand paul on deficit spending on youtube 2018 watch the whole video

  7. THAT $1.5 TRILLION (with a T), ADDED TO THE EXISTING $20 TRILLION DOLLARS OF DEBT AMERICA ALLEGEDLY OWES COMES TO $21.5 TRILLION DOLLARS. WE CAN PAY THAT EXACT AMOUNT OFF TOMORROW AND HERE'S HOW–WE HAVE CONGRESS GO BACK AND INVESTIGATE THE $22 TRILLION DOLLARS THAT THE FEDERAL RESERVE BANK PAID OUT TO FOREIGN CENTRAL BANKS AT THE END GAME OF THE DERIVATIVES SCAM OF 2008 WHEN THAT BALD HEADED TURD PAULSON WAS SELLING ANOTHER FLEECING OF WE THE PEOPLE TO SAVE THOSE WHICH WERE CALLED "TOO BIG TO FAIL". THE FED UNDER LITTLE TIMMY GEITHNER (AND LIKELY THE ACTORS IN THAT DERIVATIVES SCAM -GREENSPAN, RUBIN AND SUMMERS) SAW THAT $22 TRILLION WENT OUT THE BACK DOOR TO PUMP UP THEIR ROTHSCHILD BANKS ACROSS THE WORLD WITH OUR MONEY AFTER HAVING JUST SCREWED THE REPUBLIC OPEBLY WITH THAT DERIVATIVES SCAM WHICH BROOKSLEY BORN OUTED AS ONE OF THE FIRST 'WHISTLEBLOWERS' . THERE'S OUR $22 TRILLIN TO PAY OFF OUR ALLEGED DEBT RACKED UP BY A FOREIGN PRIVATELY OWNED CENTRAL BANK THAT HAS FLEECED AMERICA SINCE 1913 AND STILL IS. WE ALSO CHARGE THEM A VIG FOR USING THAT MONEY AND THAT SHOULD BE ENOUGH FOR THE INFRASTRUCTRURE COSTS TO REBUILD AMERICA. ALL THIS IS TRUE-THINK ABOUT IT. WHERE IS THAT $22 TRILLION NOW?
