But we honestly need more politicians who are fiscally conservative/have economic background vs. having sociology background...

Despite their claims to the contrary, the Republican party is not fiscally conservative. This has been proven true by the last 3 Republican presidents and many Republican controlled years of Congress.

The Democratic party is clearly not fiscally conservative. This has been proven true in the current Congress.

The country as a whole is not fiscally conservative. This has been proven true in more ways than I can count!

Given these facts, I would not hold my breath looking for a fiscally conservative government any time soon.
