    And that other spending, including tax exemptions, credits, etc (which are really spending by another name), military spending and so on, is on the table to be reduced?
    Amazing, for the third time you post a debunked chart.

    One common way to measure federal spending is to compare it to the size of the overall U.S. economy. That at least puts the level into context, helping account for population growth, inflation and other factors that affect spending. Here’s what the White House’s own budget documents show about spending as a percentage of the U.S. economy (gross domestic product):


    2008: 20.8 percent
    2009: 25.2 percent
    2010: 24.1 percent
    2011: 24.1 percent
    2012: 24.3 percent
    2013: 23.3 percent

    Sure, because YOU say so.
    FACTS Matter

    Donald J Trump is every Conservative Republican after 3 or 4 drinks. He says exactly what they are thinking, when they donít have the stones to say it themselves. He just sayís them with their usual ignorance, but only louder.
