The House Debates a Balanced Budget Amendment - Really!

There was a time in America when Paul Ryan and his Republican colleagues would have been embarrassed to stage such a cynical, hypocritical, dishonest debate, after passing their 2017 tax bill and the more recent spending increases. But we now live in an alternative news environment in which Republicans can somehow argue that they are the party of fiscal responsibility without the nation letting out a collective guffaw.

John Harwood has a more respectful piece regarding this spurious debate here, but the conclusions are the same: Republicans are not interested in a real debate about balancing the budget.

Nor have they ever been.
