Dems’ unbelievable demand to stop debt clock from running in Capitol

I thought only babies believed if you can’t see it, it isn’t there.

Two big baby Democrat members of Congress threw a temper tantrum Tuesday during a House Financial Services Committee hearing on the budget because they don’t want to see the national debt clock running on two screens in the hearing room anymore.

Seriously.

The Daily Caller reported that California Rep. Maxine Waters and Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison – yes- the same man who just went crazy on Sean Hannity’s show Tuesday night - complained to Republican chairman Rep. Jeb Hensarling about the debt clock displays.

“Clearly it is a political prop designed to message ideologically,” Ellison said.

The two got their way, and now, no Democrats have to look at the debt this country incurs every second of the day.

“At the request of the ranking member, the national debt clock will not be put on the screens during Democratic time,” Hensarling said.

You can run, Democrats, but you can’t hide.

    What a bunch of fruitcakes. I thought all of those folks lived out in Sunny California, but I see I was wrong in my assessment of this. Keep that clock ticking and maybe a few of them will be shamed into doing the right thing.

    @ KB Cook, you're kidding right? :)

    They don't know what shame is.

    Mo' money, mo' money, YO money, honey!! It's all about the political class demanding MO' MONEY from the productive class, to buy votes from the parasite class. 'Nuff said….

    If we want clocks how about ones that count gun deaths or dollars earned by the .1% or number of children in poverty or families without health insurance or bridges in need of repair or cost of 1 year of college education or number of jobs shipped overseas or chickens hatched? It is all playground politics by people who could care less about actually dealing with real issues like adults.

      So, why don;t you help deal with some real issues in real life instead of trolling a conservative site, pond scum. Barring that, here's hoping you spontaneously combust.
