Republicans like to portray President Obama as a big government spender, despite the fact that government spending under Obama has grown at its slowest pace since the Eisenhower administration. The GOP is also trying to pretend the spending cuts that Obama has signed into law over the last two years simply didn’t happen.

In fact, under its current trajectory, non-defense discretionary spending — everything from education to food safety to transportation to housing to veterans’ benefits — will hit historic lows in the next decade, as Center for American Progress Director of Tax and Budget Policy Michael Linden showed in these charts:

Thank you so much for reprinting the propaganda and lies from the unbiased blog called Think Progressively Dumber so we can get more freebies from our Chosen One.

What a great non-partisan site, think progress dot org. Why, they see both sides of every issue and give them fair treatment..........not. They so far to the left they can touch the far right.

Major individual donors include George Soros, Peter Lewis, Steve Bing, and Herb and Marion Sandler.
