You have to love the Democrats and their delutional statements. But the press will eat this up and use it as a talking point for a long time. It's the liberals way. If they say it it must be true. hahahahahaha. Only in their heads. They even created and saved jobs, you just can't tell by looking at the raising unemployment rates. The Democrats are for the poor and the middle class, even though the middle class and poor keep getting poorer. The Republicans are for the rich, even though the Democrats gave our tax $'s to large companies. They've helped us out by shutting down our countries oil riggs and wonder why gas is so expensive. But I'm sure they blame the Republicans for that as well. It's becoming hard to listen to such foolishness. Is there even one person on the left that agrees with what Pelosi is saying?
At her final press conference as House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said, "Deficit reduction has been a high priority for us. It is our mantra, pay-as-you-go."
The numbers tell a different story.
When the Pelosi Democrats took control of Congress on January 4, 2007, the national debt stood at $8,670,596,242,973.04. The last day of the 111th Congress and Pelosi's Speakership on December 22, 2010 the national debt was $13,858,529,371,601.09 - a roughly $5.2 trillion increase in just four years. Furthermore, the year over year federal deficit has roughly quadrupled during Pelosi's four years as speaker, from $342 billion in fiscal year 2007 to an estimated $1.6 trillion at the end of fiscal year 2010.
