Where our deficits come from

The Hoosierpundit site , linked to in the previous post, ends with a graph showing how, under Obama, the federal deficit has trippled over the Bush years. That is an unfortunate spin. This graph, which projects our deficit into the future shows that of the four changes brought about during the Bush era which accelerated the deficit the one that does the most damage is the Bush tax cut (with no spending cuts to support it)

Remember this every time Congressman Boehner attempts to shift the blame onto the President.
