More on government spending under Obama from Kevin Drum and Ezra Klein

January 24, 2013

Kevin Drum and Ezra Klein do a good job elaborating more on the ideas Yglesias touched on in my last post. It’s important read the post and take a look at the charts, but Kevin Drum sums up his point:

“total government spending didn’t go up much during the Clinton era, and it’s actually declined during under President Obama. In the last two decades, it’s only gone up significantly during the Bush era, the same era in which taxes were cut dramatically.”
