    No, there’s more to be said, such as how we got here (and by who):

    Mark,

    Let’s remember that the President does not originate bills – Congress does. And most of those years were years where Democrats controlled Congress.

    Is that really the best you can come up with? Reagan really wanted to cut the deficit, but he couldn’t control Congress’ wild spending habits? Bush 1 proposed lots of spending cuts, but those darned Democrats wouldn’t let him?

    I’m actually in favor of a lot of conservative economic principles. I just wish Republican politicians were too. And it annoys me to no end to see partisans like yourself willfully ignoring the fact that neither party really delivers on what it says.

    Mark,

    No, it’s not “the best I could come up with” – it’s the truth. Clinton’s deficit reducing years were with a Republican Congress, for example. Yes, Bush II never vetoed a single spending bill and most of his years were under a Republican Congress. The point here is that focusing on Presidents misses the importance of the Congress since Presidents advocate for but do not originate bills.

    I’m not sure why you would call me a partisan when you know nothing about my politics. Just deal with the facts that I have stated and leave the name calling for another time.
