Who knew Barack Obama & Democrats were such skinflints in 2010?

There is a lot of talk about the free spend­ing of Barack Obama but appar­ently if you look at the num­bers you will be sur­prised to find out just how miserly our cur­rent pres­i­dent has treated our funds.

Under George W. Bush who never met a spend­ing Bill he didn’t like, who was actively fight­ing two wars the high­est amount the fed­eral gov­ern­ment spent was 2982.5 Bil­lion dol­lars in 2008. The low­est was $1.862.9 in 2001

Under Barack Obama The Fed­eral gov­ern­ment spent a low of $3.456 Bil­lion in 2010 and a high of $3.456 Bil­lion in 2010 in actual dol­lars. In terms of bud­gets the high pro­posed in 2013 is $3,803 Bil­lion dollars.

The LOW fig­ure for the Obama years $3,456 Bil­lion is $474 Bil­lion higher than the biggest Bush Bud­get and $1,544 Bil­lion Greater that the low­est amount George W Bush spent as president.

To put that in per­spec­tive $1,544 Bil­lion is more than the entire amount of money the fed­eral gov­ern­ment spent in 1995 under Bill Clinton.

So in 2010 Barack Obama low year for spend­ing, the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment spent more money than George Bush in his first year and Bill Clin­ton in his third year COM­BINED.

And just a reminder 2010 spend­ing took place under a con­gress fully con­trolled by Democrats.

And yet that spend­ing is a full 9% less the spend­ing we are talk­ing about today. Four times the size of the seques­tra­tion cuts in terms of percentage.

WHO KNEW Barack Obama was such a skin­flint in 2010

WHO KNEW Barack Obama was so Scrooge like he would dare have run a fed­eral gov­ern­ment with 9% less spend­ing than today.

WHO KNEW Democ­rats in the con­gress of 2010 were so cheep that they would not fund the gov­ern­ment at the lev­els they find so nec­es­sary today?


And who KNEW that under Bill Clin­ton in 1995 peo­ple & George Bush in 2001 that peo­ple were starv­ing in the streets, mind you I don’t remem­ber this hap­pen­ing but it must have been so because in those years spend­ing was so pal­try how could human beings live?

If I was the GOP I would make this case every day of the week and twice on the Sun­day shows.

Update: Those dec­i­mal points were in fact com­mas, cor­rected also there is a fol­low up post com­ing at noon that you don’t want to miss.

It’s Fri­day and with under 48 hours to go my $300 weekly pay­check faces a deficit of $139

And while Barack Obama fund­ing requests con­stantly increase mine remain 15 read­ers weekly kick­ing in $20 is the prob­lem before the house.

It is a prob­lem eas­ily solved how­ever if 7 more of you this week decide my work is worth that mys­ti­cal $20 and hit DaTip­Jar below the pay­check will be achieved and I can breathe eas­ier until Sun­day when the whole process starts again.




There is a lot of talk about the free spending of Barack Obama but apparently if you look at the numbers you will be surprised to find out just how miserly our current president has treated our funds.

Under George W. Bush who never met a spending Bill he didn’t like, who was actively fighting two wars the highest amount the federal government spent was 2982.5 Billion dollars in 2008. The lowest was $1.862.9 in 2001

Under Barack Obama The Federal government spent a low of $3.456 Billion in 2010 and a high of $3.456 Billion in 2010 in actual dollars. In terms of budgets the high proposed in 2013 is $3,803 Billion dollars.

The LOW figure for the Obama years $3,456 Billion is $474 Billion higher than the biggest Bush Budget and $1,544 Billion Greater that the lowest amount George W Bush spent as president.

To put that in perspective $1,544 Billion is more than the entire amount of money the federal government spent in 1995 under Bill Clinton.

So in 2010 Barack Obama low year for spending, the Federal Government spent more money than George Bush in his first year and Bill Clinton in his third year COMBINED.

And just a reminder 2010 spending took place under a congress fully controlled by Democrats.

And yet that spending is a full 9% less the spending we are talking about today. Four times the size of the sequestration cuts in terms of percentage.

 

WHO KNEW Barack Obama was such a skinflint in 2010

WHO KNEW Barack Obama was so Scrooge like he would dare have run a federal government with 9% less spending than today.

WHO KNEW Democrats in the congress of 2010 were so cheep that they would not fund the government at the levels they find so necessary today?

 


And who KNEW that under Bill Clinton in 1995 people & George Bush in 2001 that people were starving in the streets, mind you I don’t remember this happening but it must have been so because in those years spending was so paltry how could human beings live?

If I was the GOP I would make this case every day of the week and twice on the Sunday shows.

Update:  Those decimal points were in fact commas, corrected also there is a follow up post coming at noon that you don’t want to miss.

It’s Friday and with under 48 hours to go my $300 weekly paycheck faces a deficit of $139

And while Barack Obama funding requests constantly increase mine remain 15 readers weekly kicking in $20 is the problem before the house.

It is a problem easily solved however if 7 more of you this week decide my work is worth that mystical $20 and hit DaTipJar below the paycheck will be achieved and I can breathe easier until Sunday when the whole process starts again.
