In the just 4 years that Pelosi was Speaker the national debt increased an unbelievable 60%.
When the Pelosi Democrats took control of Congress on January 4, 2007, the national debt stood at $8,670,596,242,973.04 — that’s $8.67 trillion. Today, the last day of the 111th Congress and Pelosi’s Speakership, the national debt is $13,871,130,353,817.40 — that’s $13.87 trillion. A $5.2 trillion in just four years. The Pelosi debt works out to $44,662 for every man, woman and child who make up the 310,574,015 U.S. populace. But we all know that this generation of Democrats don't want to pay their bills let alone their debts. They will just pass their debt,plus some more if they can, onto the born children. Now if we include the debts of the state and local government it's much more then this. See the Democratic Party as well as some Republicans want to add to our deficit. Yep, I said add not pay down or deficit. To the Democrats our deficit isn't a problem. It was a problem when we had a Republican president but now that it is 60% higher in just 4 short years the Democrats want more money. We have a reckoning coming and the Democrats aren't going to like it. But at this point I don't care what the Democrats want. They took enough in t6his generational theft already. It's time to pay up. And that means you Boomers as well. We are not your slaves and the next generation aren't our slaves either. This will be the first time in our history that one generation took from all the other generations like pirates, instead of leaving the next generation in a better place then they had. Shame on us all.
