    Default Re: change in debt from taking office to leaving office

    It can be viewed three different ways.

    Depending on who you talk to, President Obama added anywhere from $983 billion to $7.7 trillion to the national debt. Who's lying? None of them. That's because there are three ways to look at the debt added for any President.

    The first, and most common, method is to subtract simply the debt level when he took office from the current debt. The second, and more accurate, method is to add together his projected budget deficits. The third method is the fairest, but is also the most complicated.
    Read all three, or not, but there is always more to a flashy headline that grabs your attention.

    Bottom line.
    When all of these are added up, Obama's debt contribution was $983 billion between 2009-2017.

    Reagan, the patron saint of the right, sure did his part. Bush lite had a proud moment also. Obama is the only sinner? Hardly.

    Obama
    “The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion dollars for the first 42 presidents — number 43 added $4 trillion dollars by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion dollars of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child.
    That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic.

    Then what was said after your quote:

    And so, yes, I am going to roll back those Bush tax cuts that give people like me, who don't need it, a huge break.
