The Scarlet S

Until 2001, Republicans had not controlled both houses of Congress and the White House at the same time since the Eisenhower administration. When they finally gained control of the legislative and executive branches of government, they failed to lead based on those principles commonly associated with the party. The extent of that failure is shown in the following:

The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll finds Democrats lead Republicans by 16 points on controlling government spending and by nine points on taxes.

That Republicans now have a bad reputation on spending is both well-deserved and shameful, and it is an embarrassment to those among us who genuinely believe in limited government.
