And, frankly, this is not an unusual thing.  Candidate promise things like new/expanded government programs and tax cuts targeted to their supporters because they like getting votes.  Then they get in office and at least hopefully govern more responsibly, either by choice or because Congress stymies their plans.  One assumes that’ll happen this time as well.
