Where are the republican debt hawks when trump adds $2T and won't take responsibility now that 'dynamic scoring' seems to have been the hoax that economists (except Don) knew it was?

It's not Donald's fault..............................only Congress can authorize appropriations. Well, there's the minor matter of spending 15 million dollars a month on Presidential golf weekends, back to back political rallies ( only the venue was paid for by campaign funds, taxpayers picked up the tab for everything else ), 5 million dollars a week for migrant incarceration.................

I guess them millions do add up.

Nah...they'll be here telling us why only debt run up by Democrats counts. Republican debt stimulates the economy, Democrat debt destroys the moral fiber of the country. Completely different.

Trump may own the golf courses (with Russian money), but he does not own (or pay) the Secret Service that has to protect him. The SS has to pay to stay at Trump's places in order to protect him
Then there is Trump's false commitment to staying in Washington, working hard, and not playing golf: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOXw8X48Q9Y
By the way, Wont, where do you get the stats that Obama's expenses are more than Trump's?

and he's charging out his butt for support, the money the secret service is paying for rooms and room service, even golf cart rental is ridiculous. We could be buying new golf carts with the rental fees he's charging. Why doesn't the SS buy carts and limit the outgo?

We know where trump will go--blame fiscal irresponsibility on someone else. Let's see--how about Paul Ryan, the wunderkind mastermind who built his career on bringing down the federal deficit. How did the leader of deficit hawks do as leader of the branch of congress that initiates and thereby controls government budgets and thereby government spending and government debt?
2016 (end of Obama admin) fed deficit = $587B
2018 (Ryan's tenure ends with republicants totally in charge for 2 years) fed deficit = $782B heading toward $1T.

As usual now that Wall Street has been mollified and they have bought back their stock, now that the 1% has been appeased with giant gains, the pubes will say that this debt is killing us and you dems have got to cooperate to bring down the debt, neglecting to say that again it is on the backs of the middle class.
Thanks, Paul, have fun with your kids, but please don't teach them your economics or your politics, the rest of us can't afford it.
And, of course, thanks a lot for standing up to the profligate spender who busted your career. (How about running for POTUS in 2020--maybe trump's 40% will follow you [and the rest of us] to the poor house)?

Where were all of the budget concise democrats when Obama doubled the total debt. His single debt was higher than every president before since G. Washington. I didn't hear any out-cry from anyone then not even the so called conservative republicans.

They were reducing the budget deficit from the $1.4 Trillion Bush left it at. The GOP was in control

But Obama is NOT president NOW. Why is the answer to this question always in the past? Your guy was supposed to stop it, said he would, didn't, and doesn't (present tense). Maybe we should go back to Rutherford Hayes to ultimately resolve this problem: Trump->Obama->Bush->...->Hayes. Trump promised and didn't perform--just admit it (just like Obama, you say), and we will move on. They are politicians, but trump is certainly no better in bringing the debt down; he said he would, but he has done the opposite. Why use Obama's problems to clear trump; doesn't make sense, Hog.

ps By the way "I didn't hear any out-cry...not even the so called conservative republicans," is not true: https://www.rollcall.com/news/-217153-1.html
