Rasmussen – 60% Recognize That Government Spending Has Increased Every Year Since 1954

That was also the last year that overall government spending in America declined from one year to the next. The numbers are documented in the Historical Tables of the U.S. Budget, but a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 60% of Americans believe it to be true. Seventeen percent (17%) say it’s false and probably assumed there must have been some year in between when government spending slipped. After all, we’re talking about years that included the tax revolt, the Reagan Revolution, the Perot movement and Bill Clinton’s declaration that the “Era of Big Government” was over.
