This graph DARES to imply that lazy people aren’t the problem!

Interest is the problem

Interest is the problem

According to this graph, entitlements for lazy people are NOT the main reason that the Federal Deficit will explode over the long term. This contradicts conservative values and therefore must be wrong.

We are always hearing from the great conservative minds of our time that our current economic path is unsustainable, and the reason is because the government gives free stuff to lazy people with Obama phones. We are specifically told that Medicare and Medicaid and Socialist Security are all spinning out of control, and that their costs will “explode the deficit” over time.

It seems strange, then, that this graph, produced by the socialist far-left organization known as the “Treasury Department”, shows that these gifts-for-lazy-people are actually remarkably stable over time and do not increase the deficit!

Instead, according to this graph, the biggest problem is the interest on existing debt.

In fact, if you look at the difference between the black line (total receipts) and the dotted line that marks the top of the colored area (non-interest spending), the total non-interest deficit is extremely small, and much smaller than the overall spending for entitlements for lazy people.

There really isn’t a lot to say about this graph, except that it’s obviously wrong.  We’re not entirely sure how it’s wrong, or why. But, it contradicts Sean Hannity… so it must, in some way or other, be guilty of liberal bias!!!

Federal spending graph refuses to cooperate with GOP agenda

Spending and revenue

 

Spending and revenue

With graphs like this floating around the internet, it is very very difficult for our Friends in the House to justify crashing the economy like they want to do. Obviously, this graph is part of a liberal plot.

The problem with this graph, as you can see clearly above, is that it shows that things are improving.

What is worse, they are improving in the most un-conservative way. It’s one thing that federal revenue has been increasing as a percent of GDP for nearly Obama’s entire first term in office. That we could probably explain away using phrases like “the resilience of the American people” and “American exceptionalism” and so on.

But as you can see, there is a bigger problem. Federal spending has been steadily decreasing as a percent of GDP over the same period of time!

WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU STUPID SPENDING GRAPH? DON’T YOU LISTEN TO THE RADIO?

Anyone who listens to the radio knows that Obama has been throwing our economy completely out of control with all of his spending. Anyone who listens to the radio knows that spending is the biggest problem in the history of the universe times a gagillion. Anyone who listens to the radio knows that as long as Socialist Obama is in office, spending will continue to destroy the lives of innocent Americans…

….which is why the House of Representatives MUST crash the economy and force us to default on our debt payments.

They are doing it to save us from the evil Obama Spending Spree.

At least, that’s what we hear on the radio. This point has been repeated over and over again.  The logic is completely irrefutable:

1) Obama is constantly increasing spending and will never stop or do anything to help the economy
2) Therefore, the only way possible to help the economy is through radical action, like refusing to raise the debt ceiling.

This argument sounds good, right? It completely justifies the House Republicans threatening total economic disaster, because that is THE ONLY WAY SPENDING WILL EVER DECREASE!!!!!

But this graph is not cooperating. According to this graph, spending has already been decreasing, as a percent of GDP, slowly and steadily for the last three years.

Honestly, people better stop circulating this graph. It’s obviously filled with liberal bias. You wouldn’t want to give people the idea that radical upheaval of our entire financial system isn’t justified, now would you?

I thought not.

Federal Spending Graph: UNSKEWED!!!!

Unskewed Federal Spending

Unskewed Federal Spending

Please begin circulating the above graph immediately. We have created this graph as a response to a liberally biased graph produced by FactCheck.org. We find the above graph to better represent conservative beliefs and values.

The original graph, shown below, might give some people the wrong impression.

Federal SpendingThis original graph could fool some people into believing that spending actually increased more under Bush than under Obama.

This original graph might make some people doubt the idea that Obama has lead the country in an INSANE OUT OF CONTROL SPENDING DEATH SPIRAL.

This original graph might cast doubt upon the notion that Obama is on the biggest spending binge ever since the beginning of time.

This original graph might allow some people to think that Obama’s policies have actually reined in the growth of spending.

Obviously, this is crazy-talk. People cannot be allowed to believe such dangerous nonsense.

Therefore, we present to you the first, unskewed and Tea-Party Approved graph of Federal Spending.  This corrected graph has been altered slightly in order to give the correct visual indication of how awful Obama really is.

After all, the entire point of a graph is to highlight the validity and truth of conservative beliefs and values, right? We have done nothing more than to adjust the graph in order to accommodate the Greater Truth about the Obama agenda.

Please spread the word, and our adjusted graph, as much as possible, in order to reveal to the world what CONSERVATIVE VALUES really look like.
