How in Hell does one cut the deficit in half, while doubling the national debt?
For you Dire, what was Bushes last debt and what was Obamas last debt. Per your chart, 2009 was Bushes last budget, 2016 would be Obama's next to last budget.
Bush's last budget was 2008 (1 Oct 2007 to 30 Sep 2008). The 2009 budget (fiscal year (1 Oct 2008 to 30 Sep 2009) was authorized thru a number of recurring resolutions until about 20 January 2009, when the Democrat controlled congress passed it and Obama signed it. Obama's last budget was 2016.
Still awaiting your answer.
If he signed it Jan. 20,2009, he sure as hell didn't write it. That's the day he took office, wasn't it?
Quite nitpicking and answer my question. When was any annual deficit reduced to half of that of a Bush deficit?
Both sides do it,,,,, your welcome JT.
