UPDATE: I have to concede this chart is actually a little slippery. It’s all technically accurate, but it includes the supposedly-one-time-only 2009 emergency stimulus funding (a one-year 18% increase) as part of Obama’s zero baseline. If you counted that as an Obama increase, as you at least arguably could, the chart would look a lot different.

…and “deficit hawks” don’t actually care about the deficit. Part 10,000,000.
