Note who's responsible for those big increases? The next time anyone tries to argue that Democrats like to spend, remember this chart. Republicans spend more than Democrats, by a LONG shot... they just prioritize their spending differently. And they charge everything they spend to the future generations' tabs.

    Hey Peter!

    Good to see you around again! The chart came from http://zfacts.com/, and the data is reportedly from http://www.whitehouse.gov (as it says on the top of the chart), but I might do a bit more investigating, just to get the facts straight. Thanks!!
