How's that working out for ya?

Here's the graphic of the day. I frequently find myself in discussions where someone brings up fiscal responsibility of the two parties. Typically, Republicans tell me they vote Republican because they are the party of fiscal restraint. My response usually goes like this "how's that workin' out for ya?" To that end, the graphic below puts a nice exclamation point on it.


  1. yep- looks like the elephants spend it as quick as the democrats extort it.

  2. Pretty much. Or vice versa, depending upon your perspective and your belief in the temporality of various events.

  3. I think- a good argument against a duopoly.

    Your chart ends at 'projected 08'

    Interesting article by Michael J. Boskin, WSJ-

    says in part 'Mr. Obama's $3.6T budget blueprint, by his own admission, redefines the role of government in our economy and society. The budget more than doubles the nat'l debt held by the public, adding more to the debt than ALL previous presidents COMBINED. It Increases non defense spending to its highest level in American history. All this BEFORE soc sec and medicare have been addressed.'

    What will that chart look like now?

    They call ME radical? maybe so- just in the OTHER direction! What will the flag of the USSA look like I wonder?
