    I agree with Felix, except that prior to 1968, you would have to separate the Dixiecrats and list them with the Republicans, since they were really ideologically the same. After the Civil Rights Acts of 1964-65, the Dixiecrats abandoned the Democratic Party and affiliated themselves officially with the GOP.

    It would be nice to also see which party held the majority in Senate/House since they are the ones who actually pass the budget. But you are of course right that Republicans, especially Reagan, drove up the deficit immensely. It’s funny how many Republicans invoke the name Reagan like a demigod even though he did the opposite of what they are saying.
