Lamest comeback ever! The chart goes out to last year, none of the percentages radically change. Besides, the new numbers are one post up, just extrapolate, jeez.
Bush II came in following a budget surplus, so his administration inherited no debt. Obama inherited 2 unfunded wars, 2 unfunded tax cuts, and oh yeah, the great recession, which means (for those unable to think) that revenue was way down.
