I have a confession to make. I am lazy with my charts. I normally will make a chart and its shelf life can last several years, if not, a full decade as long as the economy doesn't change too much. For example the stock market has remained bubbly over these past few years rarely requiring I update the S&P 500 PE ratio or dividend yield. But the same cannot be said for Obama's deficit spending and accrual of debt. Each year I have to update any debt related charts because the SOB adds another trillion+ to the deficit every year.

So here are the two main charts (updated) attesting to debt - deficit and debt to GDP.
For S's and G's I decided to also check to see how much the federal budget was as a percent of GDP:
I love the jump in spending not just under Obama, but how the American public keeps voting in to have government play more and more of a role in our lives. And that chart above is JUST FEDERAL. Tack on another 10% to account for state and local, 20% if you're a sucker and live in California.
