Apply the same rage to Obozo....

Let's be fair to GWB about spending.

Most of the increase in dollars of spending during his presidency was for old social and entitlement programs in effect already in 2000. Those programs increase automatically with population and inflation.

Spending had close to no growth during the Bush years EXCEPT for mandatory spending and defense/security spending.

GWB was a great president.

I would like to see some honest historians telling us about his greatness.

The Senate has already passed a bill to keep income taxes from going up on middle-class families. That’s already passed the Senate. Your member of Congress like Allyson and Chaka, other Democrats in the House, they're ready to go. They're ready to vote on that same thing.
