some actual numbers

Here is something for your consideration, if you’re an American.

Some government accounting figures about US federal government annual budget finances.

1981 deficit (Carter’s last budget, inherited by Reagan): $79 billion
1984 deficit , last year of Reagan’s first term: $185.4 billion

2009 deficit (Bush’s last budget, inherited by Obama): $1.413 trillion
2012 estimated deficit: $1.327 trillion

Reagan first term, comparing first year to last: deficit increased about $106 billion
Obama first term, comparing first year to last: deficit decreased about $86 billion

 

Now, somebody say something about “Obama’s out of control spending increasing the deficit” and “Reagan’s fiscally responsible government”.

Let’s spell this out, because this is important. This is a clue about the big differences you get between dealing with actual facts of reality versus people squawking what they’re told they’re supposed to think like a halfwit parrot.

Please act accordingly.
