Dems offended by national debt clock

Surprisingly, Democrat lawmakers in the House don’t want to be reminded of their incompetence and fiscal profligacy and are thus uncomfortable with the presence of the debt clock in the House.

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.

Ignoring the debt isn’t going to solve the problem, of course, but this appears to be the official Democrat position from Obama on down to these two rocket scientists. See no evil, hear no evil…

    "We don’t have a spending problem" I am offended that the people who are spending your hard EARNED money have no respect for YOUR money! Peace to all and thank-you all for all you do for our GREAT country!

    I think that they are offended that there is not a couple more zero’s on that there clock……16,000,000,000,000,000.00. That might make them dems happy. "We don’t have a spending problem." Remember: "We have to pass the bill, to see what is in the bill."

    Ellison is the political prop designed to message ideologically. Ellison, who is black and Muslim, is the problem: His ideology is Islamofascism and like Waters, black supremacy and anti-white racism.
