    Look at line 27 which will tell you whether the govt was running a deficit or surplus, if Republitards are party of less govt please explain why over the last 30 years every Republitard president has run a deficit every year they were in office? If trickle down and tax cuts for the rich are supposed to work find me one year under the Republitard president where generated revenue[receipts] has exceeded government spending[expenditures]? Why is it only in the Clinton years that were see a general reduction in deficit and surpluses? Why is it under Republitard presidents that deficits grew year after year?

    Edit: In all fairness, the deficit under Bush did go down from 2004-2006 but more than quadrupled in his last three years and that since 2007 its been a downward spiral, proof that what Bush started Obama inherited.

    Proof?

    How do you claim to prove something that's commone knowledge?

    The demands to shrink government and actually cut spending is a new [at the level] phenominon.

    AS I said countless times before, there is no difference between parties as far as the growth of government is concerned.

    Reagan exploded the deficit under his admin with all that military spending stimulus. You don't ever hear that much either. When confronted with facts like the ones you posted, righties just say "the previous Republican admin is what made Democratic admins successful that way.

    And you can achieve that by reducing spending.

    but everyone wants someone else to cut thier sacred cow first, b/c it thier sacred cow gets cut, grannies will starve and chilluns will go w/o book lernin'.
