Patterico's Pontifications


L.A. Times Blatantly Misstates Facts Regarding National Debt

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 10:20 am

David Lauter makes a false claim at the L.A. Times about the national debt.

“[T]he U.S. debt burden is starting to decline.”

Utterly false by any measure.

Lauter also tries to claim that, if one measures debt by gauging national debt held by the public as a percentage of GDP, the debt grew rapidly under Bush, and Obama is the guy getting it all under control.

Tom Blumer destroys Lauter here. But a picture is worth a thousand words:

Blumer demands a correction here. I plan to write an email myself when I get time, and suggest you do the same.

Excellent work by Tom Blumer.
