|The 10 Most Underreported Stories for 2010||More Democrat Voter Fraud (is there any other kind) in Texas|
Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is either a liar or completely delusional, or perhaps just plain ol’ batshit-crazy.
She started her term as Speaker of the House with a lie (“You must drain the swamp if you are going to govern for the people.”), so why not go out with a lie, too?
In her final press conference before having to give up her gavel (thank you sweet baby Jesus), she told this whopper: “Deficit reduction has been a high priority for us. It is our mantra, pay-as-you-go.”
Except for one little thing, called facts:
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.
Actually, I guess she might have been telling the truth if, by “foucs on deficit reduction,’ she meant that we were focused on making sure that we didn’t reduce it. At all. And perhaps by “Pay-as-you-go,” she really meant “borrow-as-you-go.”
Doug Ross: “Coming from the most radical and fiscally destructive House Speaker in American history — who added $5 trillion in new deficits in just four short years — this is comedy gold.”
Put more succinctly, Jim Hoft simply states, “What a horrible woman.”
