It's the American dream, really. A $15/hr. wiping job with free government health care and free college for the kiddos. Mandated family leave to add more kiddos. Open borders, baby! Big Government is my friend! This Joseph Biden is one generous gringo. And once they get that Paris climate thingy going...ooh lala. Pack a bag, fam, it's time to caravan!

Our government is already bigger than theirs. So, all of this "big government" stuff is nonsense. It is citizens making a choice about where the spending that occurs goes.

The best year on the chart was 2015, under Obama. It went bad from there.
