The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
So, while the GOP needs more work, things are not as you so shallowly state. It is the liberals that want the bigger gubmit teat. All of them.

2001-2008: Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
2009-2016: Dissent is the highest form of racism.
2017-? (Probably): Dissent is the highest form of misogyny.
Note the deficits (allowing ALL BTC's to sunset, continue budget control act, eliminate 'doc-fix') will reduce to $349b in 2018 before rising again. The total debt increase project by 2021 will be $4,687t. Table S-4. Does this sound good?
Also consider the $4.4t claimed includes those savings already passed in the budget control act which is estimated at $1.2t so the $4.4 claimed is actually $3.2.
