Here's what the feckless Republican party has told its dupes to parrot about the USA's annual budget.
"Federal spending in 2008 was $2.98 trillion under Bush, the highest spending of any one year during his Presidency.
Obama 2009 = $3.52 trillion; Obama 2010 = $3.46 trillion; From: http://www.usgovernmentspending.com/fed_spending_2010USrs"
Here's what these lapdogs do not know. 2009 belongs to GEORGE W. BUSH. These years are FISCAL YEARS. FY2009=(Oct.08-Sept.09) Bush signed the 2009 Fiscal Year budget.
Bush handed out the TARP money to Wall Street; Obama got it back.
Bush moved the costs of the wars off-budget; Obama put it on the budget. Let's not forget; the Republicans lie and American soldiers die.
