Good news, everyone -- The nation's bebt crisis has been resolved, thanks to Democrats on Capitol Hill. You know, because what you can't see can't hurt you, or something.
You can't make this stuff up:
During a House Financial Services Committee hearing Tuesday on the budget, two Democrats complained after House Financial Services Committee chairman Jeb Hensarling instructed that two monitors in the hearing room display a real-time running national debt clock.
California Rep. Maxine Waters and Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison both issued complaints about the displays, according to video of the hearing. ...
Waters asked that the debt clock not be on display whenever Democrats spoke, Hensarling said during the hearing.
“At the request of the ranking member, the national debt clock will not be put on the screens during Democratic time,” said Hensarling, a Texas Republican.
See Maxine explain America's doomsday after the jump!
Are you scared yet?
