Why Was the Heritage Foundation Silent During the Trump and Bush Years?

The conservative Heritage Foundation is now saying that “Congress must take debt danger seriously” and “not spend recklessly.” Why was Heritage so quiet during the Bush and Trump years? Federal spending during both administrations was extremely reckless. Now that the Democrats are in power, I have noticed increased fundraising e-mails from Heritage so that the think tank can help save us from the big-spending Democrats. Too bad Heritage didn’t save us from the Bush and Trump spending. Too busy being a cheerleader for U.S. military interventions and increased defense spending I suppose.
