Behind Obama, Nancy Pelosi is the most prolific liar in political history.
There was never a Clinton ‘surplus.’ The ‘surplus’ was based on CBO projections, and fuzzy accounting tricks, over a decade. The CBO didn’t predict the 9/11 attacks, the stock market crash, the Afghanistan and Iraq wars or Katrina.
On the fiscal responsibility issue, Pelosi forgot to mention that under her leadership, Democrats refused to pass a budget. There would be no budget debate had Pelosi done her job. Democrats were scared to pass another multi-trillion-dollar budget that would leave another trillion dollar deficit before the 2010 midterms.
Since 2007, Nancy Pelosi has added over $5 trillion-dollars to the national deficit.
As for Obama’s stimulus and job creation. Nancy lied so much she was stuttering and stammering like Mel Tillis. Using the Obama regimes own numbers, one can see Pelosi’s bold-face lies.
Obama stimulus was to keep unemployment from going above 8 percent. How did that go? We had 23 straight months of 9% plus unemployment. That is a failure.
Obama and the Democrats said there would be 137.6 million jobs if the stimulus was passed. Today, the U.S. has only 130.7 million gainfully employed workers. That leaves them with a 6.9 million jobs deficit. Even if you are stupid enough to believe Pelosi’s claim that the stimulus ‘saved or created’ 3.5 million jobs, they are still 3.4 million short of what was promised. This on top of the fact that the private sector has shed 11.8 million jobs since the Obama stimulus was passed.
This is what Pelosi-Reid and Obama have accomplished since 2007:
