Michael Linden, the Director for Tax and Budget Policy at the Center for American Progress Action Fund, has provided a terrific chart for ThinkProgress. Turns out that spending, taxes, and the deficit are all lower under President Obama than they were when he took office. I’d rather that strategic spending went up in order to recover from the depression, but hey, it’s nice to have a few facts introduced into the political discussion on deficits and the like. If you know a way to get the mainstream media to pay attention, please let me know!
