Comparatively?  Yes.

You really don't live in reality.

Spending Bills originate in the House. The last time I looked, the Democrats control the House.  The Senate needs 60 votes to break a fillbuster, which means that the GOP majority needs to go along with Democrats to get anything they want. 

In 2020, when President Trump is reelected and we retake the House and gain a fillabuster proof majority in the Senate, then you can blame President Trump and the Republicans for this continuing mess in Washington.

So you are absolving Obama of anything to do with the deficits under his 2 terms?

Indeed!

Repeating myself but this epic, historic boom was the perfect opportunity to begin addressing the debt and associated deficits. The GOP has lost any credibility when it comes to their pearl clutching about debt. They've been going on about it since the Tea Party movement. They owned the Congress for Obama's last six years and they had the trifecta in 2016. How did they address this issue?

No credibility. It's been all talk all along simply to keep the libertarian leaning conservatives in their camp. When the "tax and spend liberals!" get power back, they'll do a better job than the "balanced budget" blowhards.

  

If you are more fortunate than others, build a longer table, not a taller fence.

Oh noes! Virtue Signaling!!

Yes, and honest too.

Want the nom-noms of a modern, western democracy, such as universal health insurance coverage, "free" college and whatever else the Dems are running on? Then get ready for higher taxes.

Beats pearl clutching about something you have no intention of addressing.

So the government racks up massive debt and then we are the one's punished for it. Do you have any idea how high the taxes would have to be to pay for all this free stuff for 320 million people?
