Video: Fiscal Conservatism Is Dead
Trump's deal with Democrats unleashes spending, uncaps debt. Bill Whittle reflects.
President Donald Trump’s budget deal with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer unleashes spending, kills the only existing restraint on it, and uncaps the national debt. The political move takes the debate off the table during the presidential election season. Pelosi and Schumer crow that the deal allows them to “advance progress for the people.” Does it also signal that any claim to fiscal conservatism by Republicans is dead?
