    Um, the 2009 budget was primarily Bush's, Obama was responsible for @ 12% of the spending. The rest of them were "budgets".



    How much is Obamacare NOW projected to cost? What did the GM/Chrysler bailout cost? What was the cost of the Stimulus? How about those Afghanistan supplementals? How about the dividend from ending the war in Iraq? Keep ignoring reality
    I always enjoy seeing your 4 year old infantile debate technique of flooding the conversation with "what is", "how much", "what about" questions. It is cute. The problem is that we have gone over this countless times and you end up losing the argument....you just can't remember.

    That number seems very low so I have to ask where is your proof? Plus Reagan just did not spend 1.7 trillion more like 2.2 trillion.

    The Bush budget was never passed by the Democrat controlled Congress but was signed by Obama in March 2009 after adding to it. From October 1, 2008 to March 31, 2009 the country operated on continuing resolutions and did not add up to a trillion dollars in deficits

    Yes, and you still don't get it, Obama has been in office almost 5 years now and his economic results are a disaster due to poor leadership and poor economic policies. He is too busy campaigning for the job he has vs. doing his job and at least trying to show leadership. Leadership is about working with both sides, not campaigning.

    Use the inflation calculator at BLS. the 1.7 trillion debt in 1988 would be 3.3 trillion today. Reagan took office with a 900 billion debt according to the Treasury and left it at 2.6 trillion, that is 1.7 trillion

    This will help you determine the debt by fiscal year which for the United States is October 1 to September 30. There are two parts to the debt, Public Debt and Intergovt. holdings.
