This is a good time to revisit BHO's spending/deficit record....


Numbers in inflation-adjusted 2009 dollars

Baseline - GWB's last budget, FY 2009

Fiscal Year / Spending / Deficit
2009 / 3.517T / 1.412T
2010 / 3.404T / 1.274T
2011 / 3.466T / 1.250T
2012 / 3.336T / 1.025T
2013 / 3.217T / 632B
2014 / 3.215T / 444B
2015 / 3.362T / 400B
2016 / 3.482 / 528B
2017 / 3.531 / 590B

So, he basically held spending flat over 8 fiscal years, while cutting the deficit by more than half. Gawd I miss that guy.
