The Federal Budget Deficits: Reckless Republicans are to Blame

Republicans can no longer claim to have any concern whatsoever about federal budget deficits.  Since 1980, every Republican president- Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, and now “The” Donald Trump- have increased the federal budget deficits that they inherited from their Democratic predecessor. The two Democratic presidents during that time period- Clinton and Obama- reduced the budget deficits both over the short-term and the long-term and left office with lower federal budget deficits than when they came into office.  Calling a Republican a fiscal conservative is about the same as calling an elephant a petite mammal. If you do it, you’re either ignorant or a liar.  Either way, Republicans are the party of fiscal recklessness and it has been this way now for over 40 years. The evidence is overwhelming and indisputable.
