    It is, isn't it. I assume it's because we have a need to compare presidents against other presidents to establish a baseline.

    Like the 3.9 trillion budget that Obama may propose in the next week or so. That number means nothing, without comparing it to something else.

    A 3.9 million dollar budget might sound outrageously high, unless someone realized that we haven't had a budget that low since George Washington's days.

    These discussions often end up also involving most recent presidents.

    You are indeed a legend IN YOUR OWN MIND. How old were you during the Reagan years? You want to apply the percentage change from the end of 1981 to the end of 1988, great, go for it, over 62%. Pre recession employment 99 million Americans, the end of 1988 16 million working Americans. Not sure what part of those numbers you don't understand but may you ought to talk to your teacher about them, of course hopefully that teacher isn't unionized.

    I have linked my data, many times, over and over. I gave you the site, BLS.gov. learn to use the data there and you will be better able to feed yourself the proper information.

    that's not a link, genius. Further, I never said "end of 81".

    LMAO, holy crap you are just incapable of admitting an error, aren't you?

    As I posted and linked, Obama submitted a 3.9 trillion dollar budget for fiscal year 2015 and it was rejected as was his 2014 budget, his 2013 budget and yet he takes credit never responsibility.

    Now do you really want to claim that the 3.9 trillion dollar budget Obama is similar to the 1 trillion dollar Reagan submitted in 1987 for fiscal year 1988>

    The Inflation Calculator

    So that 1 trillion dollars in 1988 would be 2 trillion dollars in 2013

    To begin with, the population has increased by about 33%. You ignored that, why?
