    So lets vote in the democtats and propose a green new deal bill. That will make the 1 trillion look like a popcorn fart in a hurricane!
    The hypocrisy of the left!

    This isn’t a left vs right thing. They both spend wayyy too much. You can’t lower taxes and increase spending. It simply doesn’t make sense.

    Speaking of hypocrisy...

    The Republican presidential front-runner said in a wide-ranging interview with The Washington Post that he’d be able to get rid of the more than $19 trillion debt “over a period of eight years.”

    Meanwhile, what you voted for…

    From your graph, it looks like an increase in 2008 by the obomo administration not seen since the inception of WW2, when America was paying for a major war effort. Obomo's increase was largly based on social programs. It also shows that the increase under obomo was slowed by the Trump administration from 2016 forward. The projected column appears based on the last year of the chart. Thats fuzzy statistics at best!

    so you are one of the great conservatives, like Rino Ronny that think it is okay for the GOP to spend like crazy and go into more debt? You may as well vote for the libbies cuz you is one on spending.

    Maybe all that spending makes you happy, good for you, I wanna see it stop, although I do have to admit I knew T-Zil loves debt, so I was hopeful Mitch would not spend like he has.

    I especially like the 'projected' part. You know, to make it look even worse.

    Wasn't someone else 'projected' to win the election?

    Since graphs are so hard to understand here, how about words interspersed with numbers?
    Of course, the link below is CNN, so I'm sure that will trigger a few here.

    Washington (CNN)The US national debt stood at $21.974 trillion at the end of 2018, more than $2 trillion higher than when President Donald Trump took office, according to numbers released Thursday by the Treasury Department.
    The debt began to level off at the beginning of Trump's term, but bounced up again last year as the tax cuts passed at the end of 2017 took effect and the dramatically lower corporate tax rate lowered Treasury revenues.
