I’m calling “BS” on another level, as well. I find it VERY hard to believe that domestic, non-defense, discretionary spending is below Eisenhower levels. That is certainly not true in absolute dollars and it is unlikely to be true in either inflation-adjusted dollars or, even, as a percentage of GDP.

Why aren’t people calling this a blatant lie? Are people just too stupid and detached to comprehend what a whopper this is? (Answer: Yes)

So do I. As far as I can find (on the 'net) the entire budget back then topped out at just under $900 billion.
