    Military spending went up sharply after 9/11, of course. In any other presidency in our past except Reagan and BushII, tax rates would have been raised to create revenue that would have paid for that. Thanks for bringing that up as an excuse because it highlights just how criminally irresponsible those two in particular but republicans in general have been.

    Yes, what do you expect when attacked? What was the cost of 9/11 to the U.S. Treasury? GAO will tell you that

    Only in the liberal world do higher taxes not change human behavior which leads me to believe you don't work for a paycheck or you would understand how taxes affect take home pay. Apparently you believe that the Reagan tax cuts didn't affect economic activity and that activity didn't create 17 million jobs? There are four components to GDP, find out what they are and find out how higher take home pay affects them?

    Interesting chart that destroys your myth about previous Presidents, use the chart to map whatever years you want but notice the debt to GDP ratio prior to Reagan and now with Obama. Cannot help but notice how digitusmedius likes your post in attacking Reagan which must mean he has a problem with Obama's spending record as well.

    Apparently you didn't read or couldn't understand the contents of your own link since it gives precisely the same information I posted from the usgovernmentspending.com website. Although I didn't need it to debunk to your continually false claims I do appreciate your help.

    It precisely destroys your belief that we had a 2 trillion dollar budget thus when revenue exceeded 2 trillion that gave us a surplus. The budget of the United States is NOT 2 trillion dollars and public debt is only part of the national debt. That is something you have a problem understanding

    How do you know it was the worst recession in the country's history? You buy the headlines and ignore the data. The Great Recession was a term created by the media and the left knowing you and others like you(the Gruber electorate) would buy it. Problem is you cannot prove it nor can the left. 81-82 affected more Americans than this one and that makes it worse.

    And your post is yet another example of conservative cognitive dissonance: if the data do not fit conservative dogma, the data must be false. Same thing goes for anthropomorphic global warming, gun violence, basic economics, education, and family values: if the liberals agree with the hard-and-fast numbers, then the numbers must somehow be wrong.

    Who termed the term Great Recession? Interesting read that will be ignored by the Gruber Democrat

    Actually it was 13.6 million jobs and Reagans tax cuts were as responsible for them as Clinton's tax increases were for the 19.6 million jobs that he created. There has never been any reliable evidence that tax cuts increase growth in the economy. There is plenty of data that shows they do reduce revenue though.
