    Of course it started with the Democrat Congress in 2007


    office would average 23.6% of GDP. That’s higher than any single previous non-war year.

    Yet, the left will deny it, but turn around in say how much they want MORE government in our lives. What's wrong? Not proud of what you believe in enough to stand by it.

    Of course if you ran on it, you might lose. Seeing how much of southern Europe has faired under similar policies.

    Spending as percentage of GDP is misleading and you know it.

    Obama-Pelosi-Reid blew the budget out in 2009 which the poster dishonesty tags on Bush, and then the Democrats refused to pass budgets from that point on - keeping the devistating budget deficits in place.
