US federal budget 1968 onwards

Well, would you look at that. For the last 50 years, it does not matter which party has been in power, they are broadly in line with the average outlays and average revenues.
Certainly you would not accuse us of living beyond our means?? 馃槒

+1 for the children sharing sweets parable

@hlpflwthat I'd say it's more like a new CEO, who promises to cut costs and raise profits, but then finds out it's not that easy. So they get fired a new one comes in and makes similar promises and they can't do it either.
@Wol62 30 years ago :) You give us too much credit. The wing nut is legit lol.

If you take a look at the difference between revenues and outlays, you WILL see a clear trend with respect to party. The difference between the two is the deficit (or surplus) All three Democratic presidents during this period (Carter, Clinton, and Obama) were president during time periods when the deficits were decreasing (1977 to 1980, 1993 to 2000, 2009 to 2016). All Republican presidents presided over economies when the deficits were increasing or steady. In fact, much of the national debt is due to Republicans occupying the Oval Office.

@pennynoodles I just wanted to shut those US wing nuts the fuck up!
You know, the kind who, if they saw children sharing sweets, they'd probably shoot them up for being commies!
