House Democrats Complain About Debt Clock

During a recent U.S. House Finance Committee meeting, a couple of Democrats complained about having to look at a ticker which kept track of the national debt in real time.  Congressman Keith Ellison (D – MI) remarked on the debt clock saying, “Clearly it is a political prop designed to message ideologically.”

In a Daily Caller article, Finance Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R – TX) said, “At the request of the ranking member, the nation debt clock will not be put on the screens during Democratic [speaking] time.”

It seems Democrats do not want to reminded of the damage Congress is doing to the nation by racking up trillions of dollars in debt.
