Again, how DARE they claim to be the party of fiscal responsibility? Clinton just reminded me that they quadrupled the federal debt in the twelve years before Clinton took office and then doubled it in the eight years after he left. And yet their entire plan seems to be about giving tax breaks to the rich, and financing that by either (1) closing unspecified loopholes, or (2) cutting aid to people who need it most -- poor children.
The whole Republican fantasy -- no regulation and no taxes -- has never existed anywhere, certainly not in any truly successful modern nation state. And it's just downright irresponsible to somehow pretend that it is going to be the answer to all our problems -- the problems that were caused by Republican deregulation in the first place.
