. Reagan increased the national debt by over 250% in less than 8 years time with no active wars.Read MoreBus h Sr. increased the debt another 66% in just 4 years with no ongoing wars, Bush Jr. increased the national debt another 90% in 8 years when he inherited BUDGET SURPLUSES, and no wars. When Bush left office he left behind massive new debt, no jobs, a major recession, two wars, and growing national debt. But then the tea party comes along and wants it to all go away. They want the country to stop spending money at a time when unemployment is growing. Show me a single time in history, just one, when the US was spending less money during a recession. It doesn't happen. As people are out of work the government takes in less in taxation. This is not the time to reduce government spending which will drive the country into a depression. The tea nuts know NOTHING about economics and how it works. They are like little children throwing a temper tantrum.
