"The DC consensus is strongly in favor of unimpeded federal spending. Nevertheless, the Republicans have long kept up the ruse that they're in favor of balancing the budget, cutting the deficit and engaging in 'limited' government. Some have kept up the spending even while cutting taxes. This has only led to back-door tax increases. But that has changed this election. Don't worry, the Republicans haven't decided to actually start cutting the budget after years of lying about it. No, what's different this year is that the Party's presidential nominee -- and hence, much of the Party -- isn't even pretending to be in favor of any real budget cutting or budget balancing."
