Look! Spending is almost flat!
Ignore the fact that Obama signed the 2009 budget because the democrat control senate refused to give it to Bush, or that most of Fiscal 2009 was on Obama's watch!
Look the other way when the Senate then proceeds to just not pass budgets anymore!
Don't count the significant portion of TARP Bush left for Obama to spend, or the fact that Obama spent the funds that were paid back!
Look Obama is only increasing spending on average by 4% - Half of what Reagan did. Obama is God!
Fred has $100 to spend. Next year Fred spends $108 - an increase of 8%
Then Fred increases spending to $150 a year to pay for an emergency. Don't worry we will ony do it one time! And Fred then leaves and hands me the checkbook. But now I spend $158 the next year - an increase of "only" 5%. See how much better I am at this than Fred? I spent $58 more they he usually did, but I am keeping government growth in check! Oh, and I don't have an approved budget or anything, but a Unicorn told me we will spend less money next year. So really I think we should say that I, on average, only increased spending by 4%.
The worst part is that Democrats are dumb enough to fall for this.
