Republicans, the party of fiscal responsibility

The state of Ohio is investing state funds in rare coins. Pretty stupid and risky to be sure. But evidently not when the millions are going to a firm run by a prominent Republican fundraiser.
These people are not only stupid and greedy, they're flat-out dangerous.

Since 1998, Ohio has invested millions of dollars in the unregulated world of rare coins, buying nickels, dimes, and pennies. Controlling the money for the state? Prominent local Republican and coin dealer Tom Noe, whose firm made more than $1 million off the deal last year alone.

Republicans have become the party of bigger government, higher taxes and enormous (historic) deficits.
What a turnaround! But is anyone paying attention? Does anyone care? And just how "conservative" and "responsible" is it to run up the nation's largest deficits?

Their hypocrisy is stunning.

But no one seems to care about their fiscal recklesness.

This from the State that did not have enough polling places for the voters so that they had to line up for a full work shift and miss work or class just to vote?

Or how about investing in some improved health care for working poor who want to pay their own way perhaps?

Oh well I guess they feel that it's more important to invest in something that makes a connected type like the businessman listed a little more wealthy. I do remember well the trickle down economics of the 80s. Maybe that old theory is being brought back for sentimental sake by some folks out there that thought it was a good idea the 1st time --
