Obama Is a Big Spender…Just Like Bush

Excellent and uselful article. What a shock - when you take money out of the productive private economy and give it to politicians and bureaucrats to spend the economy does worse - who would have guessed? BTW, Clinton was dragged kicking and screaming to make those cuts --left to his druthers instead of cuts we would have had "HillaryCare" and other idiot programs.

A couple of weeks ago, I debunked the myth that Obama is a fiscal conservative by showing how TARP masks his real record.

I then followed up that post by showing that Obama is a traditional leftist who spends on social welfare programs, but also did a final post showing that Bush was similarly profligate.

Now we have some additional research confirming these points. Art Laffer and Steve Moore investigate Obama’s claim in today’s Wall Street...
