Not really any surprise here, now that they have full control, the Republicans are already reverting to the party of big spending conservatism just like they were under Bush. Who cares about budget deficits now? We've got a Republican president so now it is time to spend spend spend.

They have lost touch.

The establishment lost the election. That will either sink in or the voters will revolt again.

Dems could also take note and proposed some meaningful cuts. That might help get them back on track.

Dick Cheney said deficits don't matter. There was an unspoken addition - "REPUBLICAN deficits don't matter".

Wars are a great deal of our spending and increase in national debt. Tell me, is Trump expected to not engage in wars given his pledge to wipe out ISIS? Get back to me in 4 years. I fully expect he will be like every war time president before him, ballooning the debt.
