GOP Fiscal Responsibility?

Last evening, while attending a social event, my good friend Rich Reilly commented on how Republicans are the party of "fiscal responsibility". While this is no doubt a Republican talking point the GOP has successfully burned into the psyche of the American public, the facts, when it comes to our national debt, tell a completely different story. This table clearly shows since 1980 at least 61% of our national debt was accumulated under Republican presidents. At least 27% has been accumulated under Democrat presidents.

The next time you hear a Republican boast about fiscal responsibility, asked them to back it up with some facts.
