From Peter Ferarra's article in Forbes:

Moreover, as Competitive Enterprise Institute scholar Hans Bader reported in May, “The Democrat Congress [in 2008], confident Obama was going to win in 2008, passed only 3 of fiscal 2009’s 12 appropriations bills (Defense, Military Construction and Veterans Affairs, and Homeland Security). The Democrat Congress passed the rest of them [in 2009], and [President] Obama signed them.” So Obama played a very direct role in the runaway fiscal 2009 spending explosion.
