Who are the Fiscal Conservatives?

Some things just don't need an explanation.

It would be interesting to see a graph like that but showing which party controlled congress.

I agree. I saw the data in old printed format in the early nineties, and the trend was pretty stable. Regardless of who was in charge, spending just kept going up. Given that Clinton had a Republican congress for much of his term, Reagan had a mixed congress, as did Bush, my bet is there isn't much of a correlation.
