    The Current Reagan/Bush/Bush Debt is:

    $12,863,374,454,272.40

    which means that in a total of 20 years, these three presidents have led to the creation of....

    93.22% of the entire national debt.

    WELL DONE!!! :clap2:

    BTW....This doesn't excuse Obama adding to this debt.

    Ya, but we know where 93.22% of the blame lies.

    Bullshit.

    Congress (which was controlled by Democratics during the largest parts of those administrations) writes and passes budgets.

    The Prez isn't Emperor.

    Right. Partly because the three were in office 20 of the past 22 years of that debt.

    I'm not buying their methodology to calculate this.

    While the these 3 certainly did add the majority of the debt, the 93% number is damn fishy due to their methodology.
