This is an interesting graph showing us just who really spends federal money like drunken sailors.
It seems interesting to me that during Republican Presidencies deficits don’t matter, but during Democratic Presidencies it is the single biggest issue that must be dealt with immediately, but not by raising taxes or cutting the military. Another oddity that sticks out here, is President George H.W. Bush was and still is reviled by his own party for his efforts to cut the deficit. I am sure I will hear some bullshit about both parties being equally bad, blah blah, but if you look at this chart, it is not even close to being true. Where the budget is concerned, there is one party that is drastically better than the other.
