Republicans vs. Democrats: Spending Statistics in Cartoon Form

One of the most popular posts on this blog was related to the myth that Democratic presidents spend more than Republican ones.  The facts show that nothing could be farther from the truth.  The original post, Spending Statistics- Republicans vs. Democrats, links to some interesting statistics.  Of course, some people can’t be bothered with that kind of information, so here’s a quick visual recap of recent U.S. Spending:


President Bush is projected to run up a national budget deficit of $482 billion, possibly a lot more. This is a fiscal conservative? In fact, the only president in the last 25 years to not only not run up a deficit, but to actually leave a surplus, was one of them thar “tax-and-spend” Democrats.

You can see more cartoons and blog posts at Steve Greenberg’s Blog, hosted by the Ventura County Star.  If I could start blogging all over again, I might invest in developing my cartoon-drawing skills to get my points across.

    Republicans and Democrats both overspend…the difference is republicans borrow 1 trillion from china, and democrats tax the excessively wealthy (who did nothing for the money except being born into it)
