A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words

Or a chart can be, anyway.

What happened in 2008?  Oh yeah, the Democrats started writing the budgets.  To his discredit, George W. Bush failed to sufficiently oppose joined in the orgy of spending, but in his defense it didn’t spiral into insane levels until the Democrats took over the presidency. 

And for those who blame the Iraq war, the chart above is pretty devastating.  So is this: “Obama’s stimulus, passed in his first month in office, will cost more than the entire Iraq War — more than $100 billion (15%) more.”

Out of control spending — and the healthcare reform fiasco hasn’t even really kicked in yet — is what is killing us.
