There’s a lot of crap circulating the internet about how the great and noble Barack fixed what that turrible Bushitler guy did to our national finances. Here are the real facts in one simple graphic.
- 2007: When Democrats took majority control of the House AND the Senate, the deficit was below $0.2 Trillion.
- 2010: After four years controlling federal spending, Democrats had increased the 2007 Republican deficit by 600%.
- 2015: Republicans are slowly bringing the deficit down, but the damage to the DEBT is cumulative. As of May, it’s $18 Trillion. Democrats are responsible for the lion’s share of it.
