    Yes they have FDR, Reagan, Bush 43 for example all increased on a scale beyond Obama.

    National Debt by Presidential Term - per Capita and as Percentage of GDP

    Now I know you are smarter than you appear in this post, debt is 100% of our yearly GDP. Your numbers posted are irrelevant and you know it. we pay debt service on the debt, not the percentage change

    Uhmm bright eyes we are talking about increasing the debt not debt as a % of GDP.

    And the guys you vote for increase it more.

    For example Bush pretty much doubled the debt.

    Obama has not done that.

    Too complicated. Stay with Liberal bad. Conservative good.


    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    So Obama increasing the debt by 4.6 trillion dollars is a good thing because it is up only 40%? You ran a business?

    Bush increased the debt 4.9 trillion dollars in 8 years or 600 billion a year and that is worse than 1.5 trillion a year? You ran a business?

    What is a disaster: We have a conservative/liberal government that is corrupt, and there are no laws in place to stop their corrupt behaviors now, or in the future.

    So no matter who or what party holds the controlling reign in Washington, we all will continue to be their never-ending source of money to forever support their lifestyles.

    Conservative/Liberal Washington elected officials - and their cronies - control the language in the tax code that allows for the continued raping of America.

    They have unbridled authority to spend as much as they wish, grow government as much as they wish...and both conservatives and liberals are equally guilty.

    Don't disagree with you on your statement. The problem is that we have a debt today that is 100% of GDP and requests for more spending. Obama has made things worse, had his chance and now needs to be replaced. If the Republican delivers similar results he too will be replaced in 2016 and I would support it provided the alternative is better.
