Give Nancy Pelosi Credit... For Breaking 'No New Deficit Spending' Promise And Raising Debt By $5 Trillion

It is being reported by The Hill that Nancy Pelosi believes the Democratically controlled Congress has not gotten the credit it so richly deserves and in another headline I see that credit being handed to her... with both barrels.

Pelosi- "we haven't really gotten the credit for what we have done."

Here is some credit for you Nancy, via CNS News, who reminds everyone of a speech Nancy Pelosi made stating "After years of historic deficits, this 110th Congress will commit itself to a higher standard: Pay as you go, no new deficit spending."

At the close of business on Jan. 4, 2007, Pelosi’s first day as speaker, the national debt was $8,670,596,242,973.04 (8.67 trillion), according to the Bureau of the Public Debt, a division of the U.S. Treasury Department. At the close of business on Oct. 22, it stood at $13,667,983,325,978.31 (13.67 trillion), an increase of 4,997,387,083,005.27 (or approximately $5 trillion).

Pelosi, the 60th speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, has added more to the national debt than the first 57 House speakers combined.

(Golf clap)

Note to Pelosi- Your adulation, your applause, your reward for spending so much of the taxpayers money, will be given to you on November 2, 2010, when hopefully Americans fire your ass from the job of Speaker of the House in all their appreciation.
