Democrats and Republicans ( Republicrats) support their party platform. Then they evade responsibility for it. What ever is spend on war, waste, and foreign aid to protect run away industry is less money that can be spent on highway repairs, schools and other domestic spending. It could also go into reducing sales taxes, property taxes, and various fees, such as driver’s licenses.
Yet while state and local democrats may use lack of money as an excuse for failure to perform state and municipal services they will support their national party buddies who have taken our tax money and spent it foolishly.
