    Mar 06 2016 U.S. Federal Government Size, as Measured by Spending, by President / Political Party

    When excluding World War II (therefore, since 1946), the average increase in government spending was 2.4% under a Democratic President and 2.2% under a Republican President. The Republican President percentage remains the same when excluding World War II because the United States had Democratic Presidents during World War II.

    CHART SHOWS SPENDING AS PERCENT OF GDP SO THE COMPARISON IS FAIR

    US Federal budget 1985: $1.66 Trillion (reported, on budget)

    US Federal budget 2014: $3.24 Trillion (reported, on budget)

    +95%

    Population growth 1985-2014 (240 million vs 319 million)

    +33%

    The Fed government is basically an unregulated monopoly. There is not a whole lot of accountability there. The DC metro area is an economic bright spot because the industry there is government and government is booming.

    Huge issues like the trillions in debt will never be addressed and so the solutions will be imposed on us eventually.

    The electorate is either uneducated or checked on most issues. This is how the beltway crowd likes it. Government is its own special interest group.
