Part of the legacy of George W. Bush and the Republican Congress

Under George W. Bush and the Republican-controlled Congress there was an explosion in the growth of big government on virtually every front. Large increases in spending were accompanied by huge deficits and a doubling of the national debt. Corporatism exploded, too, in the form of bailouts and there was increasingly centralized power in education, expansion of Medicare and rapid growth in government regulation.

George W. Bush did not veto a single spending bill in his eight years in office.
