Buchanan writes, "As for the Republican Party, the conservative party of lower taxes, balanced budgets and free market solutions to social problems, the fiscal debate will be over in a way it has never been before."

Complete rubbish. Conservative Republicans don't in the least care about budget deficits, particularly Ronald Reagan.

Here's the history you'll never hear from Buchanan: "Reagan took the deficit from $70 billion to $175 billion. Bush 41 took it to $300 billion. Clinton got it to zero. Bush 43 took it from zero to $1.2 trillion. Obama halved it to $600 billion. Trump’s got it back to a trillion."

Tax cuts for billionaires, expanded padding of our hugely bloated defense budgets, much of which goes to corrupt defense contractors today as it did in Reagan's era, and cuts to those in our society who most need help is what Republicans actually stand for and actually do in office.

Shame on Pat Buchanan!
