Remember that “net spending cut” the president kept talking about a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away when he was a mere presidential candidate (i.e., the 2008 presidential campaign)? Take note of how Tea Party critics fault us for not more aggressively challenging the spending excessed of the Bush Era?
Well, seems like such folks have some explaining to do. Via Instapundit, we learn that the “111th Congress Created More National Debt Than First 100 Combined“:
I keep hearing over and over again this claim from the left and their apologists in the media that the 111th Congress was the “most productive” Congress since the Depression era. Maybe that’s true and maybe it isn’t, but since when is doing stuff on its own a positive? Shouldn’t what they’re doing matter more?
Because what Congress did was add $10,492 in debt for every man, woman and child living in the United States.
Funny how they equate productivity with spending money. By their standards, I guess a teenager who runs up her parents’ credit card at the mall, can just say she was being productive.
