A friend of mine posted a wall photo that was entitled, "Who Increased the Debt"? it has Reagan at 189%, George Bush at 55%, Clinton at 37%, GWBush at 115%, and Obama at 16%.
I found an article from CBS that said the following, "The latest posting by the Treasury Dept. shows the national debt has increased 4 trillion on President Obama's watch. The most rapid increase in the debt under any other president." cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-20095704-503544.html
My friends response was, "I think the graph shows total expenditures, not the rate of increase at a particular point in time".
Does anyone have any good comebacks?
