House Republicans are voting in favor of entitlements and earmarks, and not even trying to resist all these new spending proposals by Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats. So says Bob Novak. Maybe it’s fair to blame the Republican leadership for this, although I’m not sure how much they can do, because it’s clear that the fiscal conservatives are outnumbered. That’s one reason why the Republican brand will remain damaged through the November election. We are acting no different from the Democrats on this, although I suppose that the few Republicans opposing all this new spending should be given some credit. Of course they never had a fiscal conservative in the White House to begin with, so that makes the fight against spending even more difficult.
