This is raw data from the Treasury Department. Ever since Regan, the national debt accelerates whenever a Republican president takes office. And with Bush-2, it really shot up, the 300 to 400 Billion of the war not 10% of the increase. The saying seems to be true. “Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.” We need balance of power. Accountability. Oversight. Looking forward to it returning on Tuesday!
Notice the Democrat president with Republican congress had the budget balanced at the end of Clinton’s term. The cost of Bush-2 and a Do Nothing congress has been higher than most probably know. $2 Trillion.
