Government has grown under every President since Reagan. Heck, the last Conservative Nationalized Education and added an unfunded addition to the largest more expensive enititlement program in the country- I also believe his job creation in the Public Sector outpaced his Private Sector numbers.
Its why I think the GOP claim to small government is complete nonsense (except for a few reps, there are still some small Government people in the GOP like Tom Coburn)- its not who wants to reduce government, it should be who grows it at a slower pace.... lol
