October 1, 2008 (four years a ago) was the beginning of Bush-II's last budget year. October 1, 2008 to September 30, 2009 added 1.885 trillion to the national debt. Note: Bush-II was not a Democrat.

No, it wasn't.

It was the beginning of what should have been Bush II's last budget year.

However, Congress threw out his budget proposal and did not pass even a pretense of a budget until nearly two months after Bush left office. Obama signed that bill into law.

Note: Congress, both houses, was controlled by Democrats. And Obama is a Democrat.
