I spent eight years criticizing reckless government spending under Obama, and I’m sorry to say things haven’t gotten better under Trump. Trump supporters shouldn’t ignore this problem.

The Tea Party movement was crucial to crippling Obama’s reckless spending, and Trump gave us plenty of reasons to believe he was going to be frugal, not Obama-esque, when it came to spending.
