    deficits only count when the dems are in charge, the GOP is the fiscally responsible one...and holder of morality...except when they hire porn stars to cheat on their wives.

    Their excuse will be that democrats in Congress insisted on the huge deficit spending bill. You know that it is Congress, not the President, that decides how much spending their be, right?

      Your claim is a lie. Only Reagan and both Bushes spent more than all presidents combined.

    They'll be claiming it's because of democrats taking over the House!

    That's what they were claiming caused the Bush43 recession! 6 years of Republican control had nothing to do with it!

    And Pelosi is fighting Trump to raise the budget caps, says she'll shut down the government if they aren't raised. The Democrats are back in town.
