Which Party Is Serious About Fiscal Responsibility?

No, it's not the Republican Party, in spite of what the words coming out of their mouths.

Consider these two examples from this week alone:

1. On Tuesday, a measure to force all federal spending to be paid for as it comes up, was supported by every single Democrat in the Senate, but failed because only 5 Republicans voted for it.

2. Today, the Republicans raised the national debt limit for the fourth time since Bush has been in office, even though every single Democrat in the Senate voted against the measure. Only 3 Republicans joined them.

This doesn't just mean the GOP doesn't know how to practice fiscal responsibility.

It means they don't even want to try...
