Republicans somehow think that they can pay the bills while reducing taxes, but that has take us to a place where we are no longer willing to pay for civilization.
The simple-minded Republican mantra that lower taxes and smaller government are always better is just silly...or a sellout to the oligarchy. It is, however, effective in keeping income disparities at extreme levels, removing the tax burden from the already wealthy, and making government an ATM machine for the well connected.
Republicans have not made government smaller, nor have they been fiscally responsible. They did not pay for the wars that they provoked, they borrowed massively from third world countries (passing this debt on to the next generation), and enriched their cronies with much of the proceeds. How is that different than a banana republic ?
