1 thought on “FACT CHECK: Obama off on Thrifty Spending Claim

  1. The White House is touting Res Nutting’s analysis of federal spending under Obama, which claims Obama has been a prudent spender. In response, the Associated Press said that wasn’t correct (see my article above).

    Now, the non-partisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget has done its own review of the Nutting article. The CRFB says, “Overall, we think Nutting’s methodology is technically accurate, but the numbers are somewhat misleading. There are myriad ways to break down the numbers, which we discuss below.”

    Read it for yourself, but I’d say that Obama didn’t do as well as Nutting claimed, but better than the AP said.
