Deficits only matter to Republicans when a Democrat is in the Oval Office.

Yes, Republicans want to keep the government broke so they can attack entitlement programs.  They aren't brave enough to attack them directly.  So they just try to cut government revenues by tax cuts to the rich (their supporters) and then scream "we're broke" and must spend on the military.  The military who, often says they don't need or even want the stuff the Republicans want to spend money on.  Meanwhile, children are starving and bridges are falling down...

Our spending is all out of balance.
