A Cliche I Can’t Stand

During election season, I found myself growing more and more unimpressed and jaded with the term “fiscal conservative.” As a reporter who covers local politics, I’ve noticed that term gets thrown around a lot. Though  I know what that term means (it means, not liking to spend), I think it has become so overused it lost its meaning. Nowadays, whenever I hear that word, I’d think rhetorically, “What’s the point of even saying it?”
