Hey Big Spender: Obama, Dems Set Record Debt Level Spending
A Column by the Editor
web posted January 4, 2011
COLUMN – Hailed as the "most productive Congress in
history" by national media, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reed, and President
Obama has piled on more Debt than the first 100 Congresses combined.
$3.22 Trillion to be exact, adding $10,429.64 of debt for every man,
woman, and child counted in the 2010 Census. The debt each owes now has
grown to $44,886.57. And they wanted to add more after being kicked out
of control during the lame duck session and failed.
Was it not Sen. Obama while running for President the one saying he
would not raise taxes "one dime"? Especially on the middle class and
the poor, then he placed a 70 cents per pack tax on cigarettes, which
statistics show the majority of smokers are the poor, lower middle
class, and middle class. Safe to say he is a liar.
Was is not House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who said when sworn in as
Speaker, "After years of historic deficits, this 110th Congress will
commit itself to a higher standard: Pay as you go, no new deficit
spending. Our new America will provide unlimited opportunity for future
generations, not burden them with mountains of debt."
Then they join forces to impose the greatest amount of debt on the
backs of the American taxpayer in history. Safe to say she was a liar
too. I guess we can count Senate Majority Leader Harry Reed in the cast
of liars as well.
In fact, the 111th Congress not only set the record as the most
debt-accumulating Congress in U.S. history, but also has out-stripped
its nearest competitor, the Democrat Controlled 110th, by an
astounding $1.262 trillion in new debt.
As of December 22, the Congressional Budget Office states the total
debt is $13,858,529,371,601.09
or $13.859 Trillion. Since Nancy
Pelosi’s tenure as speaker, which commenced on Jan. 4, 2007, the
federal government has run up $5.177 trillion in new debt, or roughly
40% of the debt owed by taxpayers.
This does not count the cost of Obamacare which has already raised
insurance costs that are predicted to grow again this year by double
"Our new America will provide unlimited opportunity for future
generations, not burden them with mountains of debt." Somehow the lying
Queen Nancy will never answer for her actions and her lies. Just as she
was asked where the Constitution allowed the take-over of the
healthcare industry she replied, "Are you serious"?
Yes, Nancy, we were serious, and already a Federal Judge has ruled
Obamacare to be unconstitutional and the case is one its way to the
Supreme Court which, thank God, still has at least five sitting members
who have read the Constitution.
The burden of fixing what is broken in Washington is on the backs of
the Tea Party candidates elected to office in massive numbers. They
will have a tough row to hoe as establishment Democrats, Republicans,
and the liberal media will be trying to malign them as radicals and
Let's hope the Tea Party members of the Republican Party remain Tea
Party candidates and will stand their ground. I have the feeling they
will. The battle is not over by any means and the grassroots effort is
already gearing up for the 2012 elections.
America can recover if those controlling the spending reel it back,
shut down duplicated jobs, scrap the US Department of Education,
curtail "entitlements" that no one is Constitutionally "entitled" to
get from other people's money, remove government unions, and run our
country like a business.
It is time to stop doing thing the way "we've always done it" because
it hasn't worked.
