In 2012, a number of "Tea-Party" Republicans ran on the promise they would cut the national debt and take steps to balance the budget. Now, we see that they have actually added $1.5 trillion to the debt and are working hard to push that to $2 trillion more debt for your children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren to work 60 hours a week to try and pay off.

The best way to learn what Republicans will actually do is to listen what they promise and count on them doing the opposite. They say they will protect your Social Security or health insurance and then vote dozens of times to take it away. Like their leader, they are all just con-men looking out for themselves.
