Republicans and the National Debt

I found an interesting chart.

The top bar is the party that controlled Congress. It seems like the best situation for the American economy is a Democratic president with a Republican Congress.

And as long as the Democrats nominate anyone other than Hillary Clinton, that’s how I’m gonna vote.

  1. Very interesting. Though I’m not sure I’ll follow your lead with my vote, the graph does suggest an interesting idea: the best government fiscally speaking is one that can’t agree on anything. Both parties have their favorite pork barrels: Republicans have trade and defense, Democrats have arts and social causes. However, when the legislative and executive wings disagree, neither barrel can get filled.
