The federal deficit is higher than it has been since the 1940s, in the years immediately after World War II.

A new visual from the “Face the Facts USA,” a non-partisan election project from George Washington University, shows the federal deficit has risen significantly under President Barack Obama, and that the government is increasingly spending money it doesn’t have.
