Wingnuts only care about Democrat spending - not Republican spending.
Oh, I'M sorry! Somebody will come along shortly and put up a different graph, which explains that your graph is dazed and confused.
Possibly gay as well.
Any rate, don't take it to heart. None of us know what we're talking about, simply because we are liberals.
I won't post a different graph. I'll just point out that the OP's graph specifically lists "new policies". So, what's the total of Obama's spending when you add in all of the Bush era policies that he kept?
fuck that, it's not even math
3.5 years is < 8 years
oh "<" means less than
Better luck next time with kindergarten.
So the CBO says that HC will cost in excess of 1.083 trillion over the next decade ( see Health Care Reform: CBO Releases New Cost Estimates For Obama's Affordable Care Act ) and the figure above only has 152 Billion.
You mean the picture is misleading? I wish I could say I was shocked, but to be honest I highly expected it.
I guess they thought no one would check? The HC plan in itself, is almost more than what they say he has spent all together!
Great observation on the actual numbers. I think they are used to catering to those who blindly follow without question. The chart was meant for liberal eyes only. I am guessing they are using the first numbers they claimed (as in lied about) and forgot to update the chart when the CBO released the actual cost.
They also have no defense spending whatsoever for Obama. They show Bush with a deficit for the wars AND/PLUS Defense spending. For Obama they only show a savings of 126 bn.
