The left has reached a new low, asking that Republicans take down the National Debt Clock on Capitol Hill. At Tuesday’s House Financial Services Committee, Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., and Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., asked committee chairman Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, to not display the clock, shown on two video boards in the committee room, when a Democrat spoke. Ellison called the clock a “political prop.” Hensarling granted the request.
Too bad. The clock needs to be displayed. (We will continue to display the count on this website.) In fact, an image of the clock should be emailed to every congressman. Our debt is sinking us, and the end times Obama predicts, if the sequester is allowed to happen, will occur down the road, if the sequester is not allowed.
