No, that’s true, because of the wide gap between obama spending and bush spending, despite the additional outlays that were attibuted to source.

The thing about the Bush spending is that you can kind of see where that 2.8T went. Retooling of intel agencies after 9/11, Dept of Homeland Security setup, Afghanistan, Iraq, Katrina, and TARP.

Obama? Well, of that 7.1T, 900B was stimulus, 175B was TARP………..and….then it kind of gets nebulous. :-(
