Democrats Complain, Get Congress' Debt Clock Turned Off

How deep in denial are some Democrats about our fiscal situation? This deep.

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.

Rep. and Rep. both issued complaints about the displays, according to video of the hearing.

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

The truth is now a “political prop.”

So now, when Democrats are talking, the debt clock will actually get turned off. It ought to be sped up.

Waters and Ellison, Jack would like to have a word with you both.
