"Data published by the White House show federal spending has inched upward annually since 1965. But no other year comes close to matching 2009’s $3.997 trillion gusher — a spending binge that’s helped put Congress on track for a record $1.8 trillion deficit. . . . The $4 trillion that Congress may spend by Sept. 30, the end of the fiscal year, breaks down to a daily outlay of $11 billion every 24 hours. Congress is now spending about $3 trillion more than it did in 1945, at the end of World War II, once numbers are adjusted for inflation.” And yet members of Congress would be hard-pressed to tell you where the money’s going. This isn’t just undisciplined spending. It’s looting."
