Democrats Deserve A Place In The Guinness Book Of World Records

According to the work of Terrence P. Jeffery at CNSNEWS.COM, I think that Pelosi and friends do deserve at the very least, a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Take a look at the table below showing the beginning debt, ending debt, and the increase in debt for the last three sessions of congress. keep in mind that in the 110th and the 111th Congresses, both House’s were controlled by the Democrats. 

Congress                                Convening/Adjourning Debt Levels

111th Congress

Jan. 6, 2009                            $10,638,425,746,293.80

Dec. 22, 2010                         $13,858,529,371,601.09

New Debt:                               $3,220,103,625,307.29

110th Congress

Jan. 4, 2007                             8,670,596,242,973.04

Jan. 3, 2009                             10,627,961,295,930.67

New Debt:                              1,957,365,052,957.63

109th Congress

Jan. 4, 2005                             7,601,016,892,663.19

Dec. 8, 2006                            8,655,403,967,590.98

New Debt:                              1,054,387,074,927.79

The 109th Congress increased the national debt by just over one trillion dollars. This was nearly doubled by the 110th Congress and the 111th Congress more than tripled the debt increase of the 109th Congress.

The cumulative increase in the National debt by the 110th and the 111th Congresses of more than four trillion dollars is put in perspective by Mr. Jeffery:

The total national debt of $13,858,529,371,601.09 (or $13.859 trillion), as recorded by the U.S. Treasury at the close of business on Dec. 22, now equals $44,886.57 for every man, woman and child in the United States.

That my friends is almost $180,000 for a family of four. Of course we won’t pay this debt. No, that will be up to our children and grandchildren.

So, yes. I think Pelosi and friends deserve a place in the Guinness Book of World Records or maybe a place in Hell; but that’s not my call.

  1. “It’s for the children”….to pay, forever. Notice how these liberal ‘leaders’ biggest smiles emerge when they have succeeded in ramming through another monstrosity that guarantees increased debt and dependency of the demos.
    Yet the so called Republicans have not stuck to principles either, and instead of attempting to reverse the irresponsibility, have adopted cowardly positions that only slows the rate of growth in big government welfare. In the meantime the people have been deluged with deceit by media and academia into accepting the unacceptable since the New Deal. Did enough of us wake up in time to save this country. Will the states exercise their rights? Will real leadership emerge in this new congress?
    The chorus of a popular Cher song reminds me of the relationship between our government and the people-

    Gypsies, tramps and thieves
    We’d hear it from the people of the town
    They’d call us gypsies, tramps and thieves
    But every night all the men would come around
    And lay their money down

    1. Well said Dave. And when it doesn’t work their response is “My Goodness, I guess we didn’t spend enough.” Did we wake-up in time to save the country? We’ll have to wait and see. For the next two years we can expect to be called the party of No more than ever before and I hope the Republicans can just smile an say, “That’s right.”It is not going to be pretty.

  2. I think the message is finally getting out. I am seeing more and more blog info daily on our pending bankruptcy. I also sense leaks into the MSM who continually gloss over that shit while waxing happy on the economy.

  3. Message getting out or not…I can’t imagine that our government kleptocrats will walk any of it back. I wonder what the collective wealth is of the politicians who created this and….wonder why it isn’t time to seize their assets to pay off at least some of this debt and put them side by side with Bernie Madoff in chains and jumpsuits. But that would mean we would have a non-corrupt justice department who would prosecute….and that obviously isn’t the case and won’t happen. From high speed light rail in Nevada, to biomass fuel production taking down trees in North Carolina….the Feds are subsidizing our suicide. Jim Jones and Kool-aid anyone?

    My kids and your kids do not deserve this. Other civilizations have collapsed from similar debt crises brought on by their leadership. The only interesting thing about this whole debacle is that our supposed leadership is so arrogant as to think they can escape gravity and history. If you are an anthropologist, you might be wondering about the inherent stupidity of man.

    1. A super comment, Cheryl. what makes me so sad is that in spite of all that should be obvious, they still think they are doing it for our own good. They don’t know it, but they should be careful what they wish for; it may not turn-out the way they think.

  4. Those bastards don’t deserve a place anywhere, perhaps a mention on the toilets down in crack lane or something.
