Democrats to GOP: Take Down the Debt Clock
During the House Financial Services Committee hearing yesterday, Representative Jeb Hensarling (R., Texas) asked for two screens in the room to display the national debt clock. This did not sit well with Democratic representatives Maxine Waters and Keith Ellison. Waters insisted that the clock be turned off whenever Democrats spoke, and Ellison called it “a political prop designed to message ideologically.” It seems Democrats don’t want to be reminded of the dramatically expanding national debt.
