That's what a tax holiday is, which is what the Bush tax cuts are: they are an absence of government funding that otherwise would have been there.

I'm telling you, you're reading the data wrong.

As any economist, and any credible news source will tell you.

Claiming that Obama has spent more? He's actually reduced the growth of government more than any President you've voted for in my lifetime. But fine, Obama has spent more.

Claiming that he doubled the deficit? Factually untrue, and you will find nobody outside of your ideological bubble who will remotely confirm that.
