Obama was elected in 2008. 2008 = $2.982tn 2009 = $3.517tn 2010 = $3.456tn 2011 = $3.603tn Of course the only reason you see any dip in 2010 at all is because big ticket items like TARP and the bailout came off the budget and yet note how the decrease in spending still didn't come close to the overall level of those big ticket items. In other words, core spending STILL increased.
