what are these numbers suppose to represent? How much the spending increased? Obama did raise the debt ceiling you know.

goddamn are you so retarded you dropped out of 5th grade before they taught you how to read bar graphs?

the number is the percentage increase in public debt at the end of the period of time shown

it is misleading though because im pretty sure most of the debt obama has added is national debt, but the asshole republicans do a shit ton of misleading stupid people for votes already so fuck it

i just dont understand how anyone could be stupid enough to think this graph has anything to do with the debt ceiling

firstly whoever made this graph did a shitty job labeling it with tiny grey letters so I missed the part on the side. Secondly I'm saying that's fine that he didn't increase spending but the debt ceiling also had to be raised.

and this graph would have something to do with the debt ceiling since it's looking at the increase in debt. You shouldn't have to raise anything if you have such a 'low' percentage and by wankos comment this graph would be bullshit anyway. I suppose I could do my own research but I don't give a fuck because all politicians are liars and out for themselves anyway

I just did the research, and according to treasurydirect.gov numbers, these percentages are pretty darn close, the only problem is that the numbers for the specific dates are not available instead only going by a yearly basis, so I will take wanko's word for what the debt was at on the dates marked by Obama. If taken from the 30/9 2009 to 30/9 2010 the debt is at 13,9.

Also drum, this is not about how large the debt is, rather by how much it has increased in the presidents period. Even though the debt didn't go up by much in percentages, the actual debt at that point is still monumental, remember that its an exponential growth.

Hmm, debt was 10.626 Trillion when Obama took office.
It's about 14.774 Trillion now.
That would be a difference of 4.148 Trillion.

Or an increase so far of 39%.

So this chart is a filthy fucking lie. Even back in April the 16% is no where near accurate.

And let's keep in mind he increased it by 4 trillion.
Regan increase it by 1.3 trillion. If you just show the percentage it's kinda deceptive because the newer presidents will always look better 'cause of all the overspending that happened in the past.

also the increase is different because inflation is different. the value of the dollar is lower and with inflation the dollar for dollar comparison wouldnt be very accurate.
