Debt Up $1.59T Under GOP House—More in 15 Months Than First 97 Congresses Combined

• CNS News
The Republican-controlled House of Representatives, which took office in January 2011, has enacted federal spending bills under which the national debt has increased more in less than one term of Congress than in the first 97 Congresses combined.

In the fifteen months that the Republican-controlled House of Representatives--led by Speaker John Boehner--has effectively enjoyed a constitutional veto over federal spending, the federal government’s debt has increased by about $1.59 trillion.

PAGE NOT FOUND - I was so looking forward to reading just what was going to be said. It really does not matter if it is a Republican controlled House or the Dems. It is those unelected people that control what happens. All their plans are going just as they set it up years ago and we haven't seen anything yet like what is going to hit the fan.
