    The #s tell a much different story, even on Obama's website.

    If it is true that for a time spending increased during Obama's term, it was because of the wars.

    I guess you never heard about the Detroit bailouts, the stimulus package, or the END of the war in Iraq.

    The soldier's are out of Iraq. The money we spend to prop it up continues to go down the drain.

    You'd better worry about what the IRS is up to and hope that our elected reps, irrespective of party, will decide for the welfare of our nation to work together.

    "IF" it's true? Why don't you check Obama's website? It breaks down the data into specific categories.
