Article 1 section 8 clause 2
Republicans controlled BOTH houses of congress for 6 of those years. They added 80% to the national debt. Then in 2012 they strong armed Obama into MAKING PERMENT the Bush tax cuts. So to blame Democrats for the size of the debt, is disingenuous at best and an outright lie at worst.

What a great billboard sign that would make!! Unfortunately, what Dotard wants to do is keep more money in the hands of the 1%--well okay---maybe the 2%...but I'm sure they'll share it with you, Kemo Sab. Then we'll all watch that deficit go up up and away.
Thanks from imaginethat and Camelot

I just wish the trickle-down believers would hold their breath waiting for it.

Because this will become Kansas, Dorothy.

If you use your numbers that's actually a 50% increase.

If you use the real numbers however
2000 Receipts were 2025.2 billion
2009 Receipts were 2105.0 billion
That's 3.9% increase in receipts
But outlays went from 1789 billion in 2000
to 3517.7 billion in 2009.
That's a 96.6% increase in spending over the same period.

Thanks to the Bush Tax Cuts....
Thanks from RNG
