Andrew Klavan and the Green Jobs Answer Man
Obama criticized Bush for doubling the deficit, but spent more money in 4 years than Bush did in 8 years.
Check out the economic growth chart. Notice the recovery that occurred under Bush after he lowered tax rates and then what happened in 2006 when Democrats took over Congress.
From the graph below, it doesn't look like we can balance the budget on the back of national defense. Looks to me like the decrease in interest during the Bush years more than paid for the defense spending. Notice interest on the debt and the level of entitlement spending during the Clinton and Obama years vs. the Bush and Reagan years. (Wonder what Starr Parker thinks about Obama gutting welfare reform by executive order?)
QE1, QE2, QE3...QE4? I've lost count
2 of every 3 dollars spent on entitlements
Government spending 42% GDP....We're nearing Spain and the rest of the PIIGS.
Mandatory Spending to exceed all federal revenues - 50 years ahead of schedule.
Debt jumped $72B the same day US house voted to cut spending by $6B.
