. . . or I’d surely have spewed it all over the keyboard, monitor and desk.
Democrats will judge what comes before Congress by whether it creates jobs, strengthens our middle class, and reduces the deficit — not burdening future generations with debt
This, from the Democratic leader who rammed through the 2009 Porkulus Plan, which left us with higher unemployment than the President said we’d have if we did nothing at all, but added nearly a trillion dollars to the deficit, and the national debt? This, from the leadership that rammed through a health care reform package that they claimed would save us $143 billion over the next decade, but has been demonstrably wrong on even the first, early portion estimates, before the plan even kicks in?
Remember this article and this little graph?
It was posted just yesterday! Yet the lovely Mrs Pelosi is trying to tell us, presumably with a straight face, that Democrats are going to judge forthcoming legislation based on whether it reduces the deficit and doesn’t burden future generations with more debt?
At the end of FY2007, the last federal budget passed by the last Republican controlled Congress, the national debt was $9,007,653,372,262.48. Since the Democrats took control of the Congress, more than $5,000,000,000,000 has been added to the national debt, an increase of over 55%, in just four years. Of that $5 trillion, $3.5 trillion has been added since Barack Hussein Obama became our President.
Then again, perhaps the new House Minority Leader was telling the truth, if she means that, in judging that legislation creates jobs, and reduces the deficit and doesn’t saddle the public with additional debt, she means that they’d vote against it.
