Hey, Big Spender!

Bush proposes a $2.7 trillion budget:

• Federal spending has grown twice as fast under President Bush as under President Clinton.

• Federal spending has increased by 33% since 2001, from $1,863 billion to $2,472 billion.

• In 2005, inflation-adjusted federal spending neared $22,000 per household, the highest level since World War II.

• For 2005, the federal government spent $21,878 per household, overall, taxed $19,062 per household, and ran a budget deficit of $2,816 per household.

And Rep. Mark Green has voted for it again and again and again.

Hey, Big Spender!
