The real time debt clock HERE.
Evidently, the incessant tally of their wild-assed spending habits is too painful to watch.
From the Daily Caller.
Some members of Congress apparently don’t like to be reminded about how much debt the country continues to rack up.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.
No, you ignorant fuck, it’s there to jog your memory about the out-of-control waste of our money.
Out of sight, out of mind, right Ellison?
As a commenter at the link put it: “The country is dying and they wish to turn off the heart monitor.”
