“Utah Senate candidate and former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney criticized the GOP on Monday for ballooning the federal deficit after years of party rhetoric about fiscal responsibility. ‘Republicans have been shouting about this as long as I can remember,’ Romney wrote... ‘We called for an amendment to balance the budget. Just a few years ago, the Tea Party movement brought new energy to the issue. But now that Republicans are in charge in Washington, we appear to have become silent about deficits and debt.’ The federal deficit swelled this year following the December 2017 passage of the GOP's signature tax law... The tax law alone was projected to add almost $1.9 trillion to deficits over a decade.”
