- Voted YEA on Medicare Part D, the largest new entitlement since the passage of Medicare and before Obamacare. And it was unfunded to the tune of $7.2 trillion.
- Hutchison herself has voted 9 times to raise the debt limit. Her only NO votes have been when Democrats have controlled the Senate.
- She VOTED FOR THE FULL-YEAR CONTINUING APPROPRIATIONS BILL. Remember? This is the one that cut $38 billion. No, wait, $352 million and it approved $1.6 trillion in deficit spending.
Now, she's telling us that we have to be fiscally responsible. That we can't vote for the debt limit increase unless there are "meaningful spending reforms."
But she voted for deficit spending. Now she's turning around and trying to say the debt limit can't be raised. She's trying to have her cake and eat it too.
I'll be glad when she's gone.
