Small Gov? Really?

Cato Tax and Budget Bulletin

All presidents presided over net increases in spending overall, though some were bigger spenders than others. As it turns out, George W. Bush is one of the biggest spenders of them all.


In fact, some budget experts suspect federal spending related to hurricane relief will reach a total of $200 billion over the next few years. Congress has already appropriated $62 billion, and much of that money will be spent in fiscal 2006. If these budget increases are not offset by cuts in other areas of the budget, Bush’s spending record will look even worse next year.
