The GOP brand of "fiscal conservatism"

This new data, reported in the Washington Post should make your skin crawl: "Federal tax receipts relative to the overall economy have reached their lowest level since Dwight D. Eisenhower was president, while government spending has climbed to the highest point since Bill Clinton declared the era of big government over, according to new figures released by the Congressional Budget Office. " Translation: The Feds are taking in less money than at any point since the 50s. Yet, they are spending more than any other time in history. Well, since the Republicans control the Executive Branch, the House and the Senate, they can't rightly blame this on the Democratic Party, can they?
