Uh, didn't they burn down the house?
For anyone thinking of voting Republican I want to remind you that the economy crashed under their watch and the deficit they so suddenly care so much about is mostly from their years in power. So yah, the Democrats be building you a lame ass shack to replace you house, but it's the republicans that burned your house down to begin with.
PS: If you don't think the Dems are to blame for the crash, then you really just want to vote Republican and it has nothing to do with the economy or spending.
PSS: If you want less Government, well that's not an option. The Republicans are the ones who run up debt (Nixon, Reagan, W) by increasing spending. They just do it on Defence and "privatized" contracts. It's been the Dems (LBJ, Clinton) who balance budgets and cut spending in to pay for new programs.
PSSS: If you just want lower taxes and don't care about spending then you are just an asshole.
