MC Why do you insist on *only* focusing on the President? Congress votes the spending into law, not the President.
Perhaps because Reagan is a little different from Carter while the Congress in 1981 was much the same as the Congress in 1980.
But I'm asking an open-ended question. What changed dramatically in 1981?
Government Receipts and Expenditures as a Fraction of GDP
It's irrelevant. The fact remains that many Democrats voted for huge deficits, so giving them a free pass is asinine.
Why did Democrats suddenly decide to vote for even more spending than they had in the past? Beats me.
