Spending Like a Drunken Sailor

Former Reagan consultant and direct mail specialist Richard Viguerie has blasted the "Washington wing of the GOP," accusing them of betraying conservatives who constitute the base of the party. In an open letter to conservatives, Viguerie said that after decades spent defeating Rockefeller Republicans, "we have a new enemy—the Washington wing of the GOP. They're not just wasting money; they're...massively growing government."

Citing the recent Highway Bill, "the most expensive public-works legislation ever," Viguerie said conservatives' duty is to their principles, not particular politicians. "If... Democrats... engaged in this level of...spending, every conservative in America would be raising their voice. We must not do less when...Republicans [are guilty]. The price of silence is hypocrisy."
