There he goes again! In his article in the Oct. 23 Brainerd Dispatch, Cal Thomas continues to make statements that are blatantly false. He accuses President Obama of adding $6 trillion dollars to the national debt, when in actuality federal spending has risen only 1.4 percent under his reign. This is the lowest increase of any president since Dwight Eisenhower. Federal spending increased more than 7 percent under George W. Bush’s administration and also under Ronald Reagan’s, whom Thomas praises for his frugality. Most of the $6 trillion dollars Thomas attributes to Obama should be placed on Bush’s watch.
when will the Dispatch stop printing articles by Cal Thomas that contain such falsehoods?
