Bush-Obama Spending ChartMany of you may have already seen this, but Dave Johnson at the Campaign for America’s Future had an interesting post on Sunday. It compares things like spending, deficits and jobs under Bush and Obama.  

As Johnson notes:

“We stopped losing jobs [while the stimulus was going] and started gaining jobs, and it was getting better and better. The leveling off…happened as the stimulus started to wind down: job creation leveled off at too low a level.”

    96% of current deficit spending comes from Bush admnistration programs, the national debt increased 75% under Bush, 2001= 5.871 trillion, 2008= 10.640 trillion. National debt increased 25% under the Obama admin. Jan. 31,2009= 10.569 trillion, Jan. 31, 2011= 14.131 trillion. Of this Bush’s contribution 7.950 trillion/8.26 trillion = 96%, Obama’s 580 billion stimulus= 4%.
