  • Obama (D): added $7.917T, 68% increase (reversing Bush's economic crash)
  • Bush Jr. (R): $5.849T, 101% increase (started two wars)
  • Clinton (D): $1.396T, 32% increase
  • Bush Sr. (R): $1.554T, 54% increase
  • Reagan (R): $1.86T, 186% increase
  • Carter (D): $299B, 43% increase
  • Ford (R): $224B, 47% increase
  • Nixon (R): $121B, 34% increase (Vietnam)
  • Johnson (D): $42B, 13% increase (Vietnam)
  • Kennedy (D): $23B, 8% increase
  • Eisenhower (R): $23B, 9% increase
  • Truman (R): $7B, 3% increase
  • Roosevelt (D): $236B, 1,068% increase (WWII)
  • Hoover (R): $6B, 33% increase
  • Coolidge (R): -$5B, 26% decrease
  • Harding (R): -$2B, 7% decrease

Adding these up, Republicans have added $9.691T to the $20T debt.  Democrats have added $9.934T, of which all but $1.76T was cleaning up Republican messes.  Therefore, Republicans "own" 91.03% of the total debt, Democrats own 8.96%.

Democrats average 279% increase (31.6% increase without the World Wars), Republicans average 43.4% increase.

It would be interesting to see this charted out by Congressional majority rather than President, since Congress apportions the money.

Democrats are the tax and spend party. Republicans are the cut taxes and spend even more party. 91% sounds like a low estimate.

Here's a novel solution to the debt problem -- sell Montana to Canada!

Only, I would change the state(s) involved. And the buyers.

I'd sell The Confederacy to Mexico.
