Democraps Don't Want To Be Reminded Of Debt

    Some members of Congress apparently don’t like to be reminded about how much debt the country continues to rack up.

    During a House Financial Services Committee hearing Tuesday on the budget, two Democrats complained after House Financial Services Committee chairman Jeb Hensarling instructed that two monitors in the hearing room display a real-time running national debt clock.

    California Rep. Maxine Waters and Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison both issued complaints about the displays, according to video of the hearing.

    “Clearly it is a political prop designed to message ideologically,” Ellison said.

    Waters asked that the debt clock not be on display whenever Democrats spoke, Hensarling said during the hearing.

    “At the request of the ranking member, the national debt clock will not be put on the screens during Democratic time,” said Hensarling, a Texas Republican.

    She obviously comes from a highly intelligent black district. If they don't speak jive (ebonics?) how could anyone else expect to get elected? Besides, I'll bet if you checked around at election time you would find a chicken in every pot in her district. Courtesy of the Democraps voter chicken wagon. :D :D
  5. Maxine Waters is astoundingly ignorant and strident nonstop in demands for more spending.. Nancy Pelosi stated recently that the US doesn't have a spending problem. That is the Democrat platform. The total of all the public sector's budgets is over half the GNP, they have borrowed money enough to bankrupt their grandchildren and there isn't a spending problem. With leadership like that there is little incentive to try to be a producer. My hat is off to all the financial traders at ET, you have made a great career choice. In the coming financial meltdown(s) you will be able to make money off of a crashing stock market, make money off of inflation, make money while the culture is completely overrun with idiot leadership. Congrats! Just pay them their capital gains and make it clear to them that you are paying them to stay out of your life, you will be fine...

    One observation is that no matter who is elected, govt spending is always rising. The other is that republican presidents sure did a good job creating almost all of the debt themselves by consistently running budget deficits.

    No argument here. They were ALL big spenders.

    And all this time I thought federal spending originated in the house of representatives and had to be passed by the entire congress before a president put his John Hancock on it.

    I was thinking much the same. Successfully betting on the end only yields worthless profits.
