Default Re: The President Obama Thread

That graph is a misleader. Bush's last year in office spending jumped huge amounts. The deficit was at $1.2 trillion Bush's last year. Since then, Obama has continued spending around that amount so that the growth of spending hasn't jumped up by much since he is still running $1.2-$1.3 trillion deficits. Deficits and budgets again are very tricky. All you have to look at is the national debt. Who is adding the most to the national debt???
