Three Updated Charts to Email to Your Right-Wing Brother-In-Law
by Dave Johnson | August 9, 2014 - 10:04am

Problem: Your right-wing brother-in-law is plugged into the FOX-Limbaugh lie machine, and keeps sending you emails about “Obama spending” and “Obama deficits” and how the “stimulus” just made things worse.

~snip~



Government spending increased dramatically under President Bush. It has not increased much under President Obama. This is just a fact.



Note that this chart starts with Clinton’s last budget year for comparison.

~snip~



In this chart, the RED lines on the left side – the ones that keep doing DOWN – show what happened to jobs under the policies of Bush and the Republicans. We were losing lots and lots of jobs every month, and it was getting worse and worse. The BLUE lines – the ones that just go UP – show what happened to jobs when the stimulus was in effect. We stopped losing jobs and started gaining jobs, and it was getting better and better.

3. Probably too complicated

For most Republicans to understand. It requires focus and thought and the realization that you might have been wrong.
