The National Debt Road Trip

This is a fantastic visualization of how the deficit spending projected by Obama compares to past presidencies.

Really incredible. This video converts the deficit spending since 1900 into miles per hour. Bush was going 63 mph, the fastest yet. Obama’s own projections put him at 173 mph for the next eight years.

The video is well worth watching.

    Would love to watch the video, but it won’t play. Why is this always an issue with YouTube?
