Charting the Debt

The New York Times has a nice set of infographics charting the history of the U.S. debt crisis. Of the $14.3 trillion debt, all but $1 trillion has been accumulated during the Reagan, G. H. W. Bush, Clinton, G. W. Bush and Obama presidencies. Democratic presidents were in office during $3.8 trillion of deficit accumulation, compared to $9.5 trillion of deficit accumulation during republican presidencies.
