What would this chart look like if it accounted for inflation?

Cutting taxes makes the debt go up. Its politically hazardous to try to cut programs, especially when you're running a surplus. Especially when you have an entire party who finds that they can justify virtually any spending by the phrase "we're the greatest country in the WORLD and we can't __Insert spending______?!"
