If you're a fiscal conservative who expects a Republican majority in Congress next year, Phil Klein at the American Spectator provides a good reason to not get your hopes up, even if the GOP does win.
Look at this chart Klein made:
The blue parts of that chart are the parts Republicans have said they won't cut. The red slice, well that's fair game. Klein writes:
Even if you were to eliminate this entire slice of the budget (meaning you're willing to gut the Department of Homeland Security and defund all other federal agencies and departments) it wouldn't even eliminate half of last year's deficit.
So, yeah. Change.
