Government:  Thirty Years of the Debt Ceiling in One Graph

The one caveat to this graph is that the colors on the bar showing control of the House of Representatives look to be reversed.

The graph seems right to me. The Gingrich house arrived in the Clinton presidency. It lasted through the DeLay period into the last two years of the Bush presidency. Pelosi then became leader during his last two years and lasted two years into the Obama presidency. The Boehner leadership started at the beginning of 2011 after the Nov 2010 elections.

Am I missing something?

Sorry, on relooking at the Chart, I agree that the House control in the chart is backwards.
