Analysis of what Obama added to the debt
#1
https://www.thebalance.com/national-debt...ma-3306293

Interesting analysis - according to the CBO, Obama's policies/programs added only just under $1 trillion to the national debt.

How can that be, given that the debt increased much more during his presidency?

Well, we had the Bush tax cuts, which cost quite a bit:

And recessions are very costly - tax revenue decreases, while "fixed spending" like SS/Medicare/Defense spending continues at similar levels.  So although the debt increased a lot under Obama, the Bush tax cuts/several wars and the recession (brought to us by his policies) were larger drivers of that debt than Obama's policies.

There is just waaay tooo much math for the run of the mill conservative here to understand how more debt is incurred despite how little on source added.  So we'll just go with the CBO. 
It will figure.  It figures with figures.  So cute how the passive racist can drop the vowel and be cute.
