Johannes, Under Reagan it was because of the Democrat controlled Congress. As for Bush, the Dems controlled Congress the last two year and added $2T to the debt.
Johannes has a typical Libtardian response as the Speaker of the House controls the budgetary process!!! The only thing ANY president can do is either sign or veto the budget passed by Congress.
The reason why Bill Clinton did so well as Bill signed into law four of Newt Gingrich's balance budgets!!!
Can you READ? I mean, can your UNDERSTAND what you read?
Does the House have anything to do with political appointments? NO, only the Senate does.
Does the House have anything to do with Treaties? NO, only the Senate does.
But when it comes to the Budget, the House rules and the only thing the Senate can do is vote yes or no!!! ERGO, the Speaker of the House rules the budgetary process!!!
Oh, and in the last two years of Reagan, Congress passed 17 laws that increased TAXES!!! And they caused to Bank and S&L Debacle of the early 1990's.
Just like laws passed by Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton caused the Housing Mortgage failure which lead to the current recession!!!
