Under President Bush the federal budget spending rose by 8 percent. G. Bush has by far outstripped other prodigal presidents. During Lyndon Johnson's term of office (1963-1969) the budget spending rose, because of the Vietnam war, by 4.6 percent. Ronald Reagan (1981-1989) was also lavish with defense spending, under him the federal budget spending rose by 1.9 percent.

Gerald Ford (1974-1977) who cut the defense spending, but significantly increased peaceful programs funds, raised the federal budget spending by 3 percent. Jimmy Carter (1977-1981) preferred to spend federal money on targeted subsidies to various US industries, which increased the spending by 2.4 percent.

Under George Bush the spending rose in all fields – the defense spending rose by 8.8 percent, target subsidies by 4.7 percent, allocations for the various domestic economic and humanitarian projects by 7.7 percent.
