I know that the Republican dogma is traditionally anti-Keynesian, but that previously didn’t mean
cutting taxes and increasing government spending when the economy is already in danger of
overheating. 

So now we have a consistent pattern of Democratic Presidents inheriting large deficits and cutting
them dramatically over their terms followed by Republican Presidents immediately blowing those
deficits back up.  

As a squishy fiscal conservative, this just raises so much cognitive dissonance in me, I would love
to know how others are processing this.
