From the office of Sen. Bernie Sanders -- Deficit Hawk Hypocrites:

Who caused deficits? Some of the same people in Congress who bemoan all the red ink in the federal budget actually created the problem. At a Senate Budget Committee hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Bernie Sanders called out the hypocrites who showered the wealthy with tax breaks, who let pharmaceutical companies rip off taxpayers, and who launched wars without calling on the country to pay the price.
