LOL!!! $1T of the 2009 deficit was related to TARP and other "investments". Only in the mind of a Democrat are such "one time" expenses, which were intended to stand up the financial and automotive markets, now part of a go-forward budget. Notwithstanding the fact that the deficit is up $9T; nearly $4T more than this "additional spending" to which you speak, which again assumes the financial and banking sectors and "infrastructure spending" continued year after year for each year Obama was President. Nice try though.
