Not sure what I was trying to do
Started this chart a while ago... I don't really remember the point I was trying to make. Most likely arguing with some partisan commenter who was identifying the all-consuming enemy army EPA as a Democrat project. Decided to finish and post the result, just to get the files out of my active folders. (Excel here.)
It does disprove the partisan point. There's not much correlation between Pres party and EPA. Nixon invented it, and the longest and steadiest rise came during Reagan and Bush 1. After that, the Satanic agency reached a saturation point or ceiling. This is unusual and definitely NOT the goal of a bureaucracy. Every bureaucracy, like every bacterial colony, demands constant exponential growth.
Chart shows the genocidal EPA's workforce and budget. Upper blue line is workforce, lower yellow columns are budget.
