Biden's Plan Promises Permanent Decline

That is the title of an article on 3 May 2021 in the New York Times by Bret Stephens. 

The few candidates who tried running for President in the 2020 race and who brought fiscal responsibility to the top priority in their platform—such were Independent Howard Schultz and Republicans Mark Sanford and Bill Weld—got no traction with the voters. The old Republican issue of balancing the budget was far from top priority in the Republican general election Presidential campaigns of 2016 and 2020. While the Republicans had the Presidency and both chambers of Congress early in that interval, they failed to deliver a balanced budget or make it the priority of the day. Realistically, we’ve days of deficit and peril ahead, on and on, made possible by the two Parties keeping so much of the public attending to culture wars, failing to champion balancing the budget as top priority for security of the country.
