Another chart that identifies the big spending party

Democrats have been more fiscally conservative than Republicans when it comes to Federal spending.

Why is this?

Perhaps it is the big amygdalas that conservatives have that make them fearful.

Republicans have never met a new defense system it didn't like and ramp up defense spending.

The GOP congress broke an agreement with Obama on spending.

The Ryan plan also increases national defense spending to $554 billion in 2013, an increase of $8 billion over the $546 billion that was agreed to under the Budget Control Act.

Six congressional committees to come up with reductions which means that food stamps and other social safety net programs are likely to face cuts to offset the increase in defense spending. 

If elected, Mitt Romney has already said he will increase defense spending and he will consider Russia the number one threat. 

Colin Powell scratched his head on the Russia threat. 

Does the US need to increase defense spending, particularly after the Us has pulled out of Iraq?
