Chart of the Day: Federal Spending vs Revenue

A close look at this chart reveals our government has a spending problem, not a revenue problem. You can see there are revenue drops after the 9/11 attack and the 2008 recession. However, the angle of the spending line becomes steeper around 2002 and almost goes vertical after Obama takes office.

In reality the blue line goes almost vertical right after the financial collapse; right before Obama took office.
