Obama debt bad, republican debt okay

I always thought Republicans were being shitty with that POV.

Under Mr. Obama, Paul Ryan, the outgoing speaker of the House, repeatedly blasted the president for declining to manage the federal budget. In 2012, he told the Republican National Convention that “in this generation, a defining responsibility of government is to steer our nation clear of a debt crisis while there is still time.” A year earlier, Senator Mitch McConnell called the federal debt “the nation’s most serious long-term problem.” Over and over, Republicans cast Mr. Obama’s unusually high deficits and additions to the national debt as a profound social menace, a form of budgetary terrorism that threatened the country’s future.

When Paul Ryan became speaker, the deficit for the 2015 fiscal year was $439 billion.

Under President Trump, however, the administration’s own projections now foresee years of deficits over $1 trillion as a direct result of Republican policies. Last year’s Republican tax cuts were projected to increase the deficit by more than $1 trillion over a decade. The spending deal Republicans passed in its wake added another $320 billion.
