It is not a partisan propaganda line about federal fiscal years and lame excuses that "2009 was Bush's budget." Bush's budget was from October 1 2008 (Obama wasn't even elected yet) until September 30 2009.<quoted text>
Still flogging the same partisan Big Lie, eh?
See that upward spike at the end? That's 2009. All that FY2009 spending and indebtedness incurred from 20th January 2009 onwards was under Obama's signature, not Bush 43's.
Spare us the tired old partisan propaganda line about federal fiscal years and lame excuses that "2009 was Bush's budget." Heard it all before - it's irrelevant. Obama could have stopped the bleeding - he didn't. Instead, he opened more arteries and called it "stimulus."
Apart from that, what's your point? That Washington has finally become the irresponsible black hole of permanent professional political class whores OF BOTH MAJOR PARTIES who are bankrupting the nation, just as the Founders warned us? That the federal government is running completely out of control and needs to be radically slashed back to its proper Constitutional and fiscally sustainable limits?
Exactly right. I fully agree. Very important chart for all Americans to fully absorb and see how they're being played for chumps by the Washington extortion mob and their bullshyte party partisan "rah rah" act. Thanks for posting it.
As far as the recovery act, I assume you would prefer the world go into a worldwide depression instead?
The parties are not 'bankrupting the nation', that is more Libertarian/GOP lines of BS to try and cut benefits for the middle class, working poor and the elderly while leaving the people who 'own' the government and who started the fiscal downward spiral to be left alone.
There is no constitutional limits on debt spending, if there were we never would have gotten into world war II.
