Some members of Congress apparently dont like to be reminded about how much debt the country continues to rack 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.
Clearly it is a political prop designed to message ideologically, Ellison said.
Waters asked that the debt clock not be on display whenever Democrats spoke, Hensarling said during the hearing.

I thought this was you.
I was mistaken.
"Make it go away!!!"
It’s like a mirror into their souls.
There is no stinking hack like a entrenched Democrat stinking hack. Their sense of entitlemnet is TITANIC
Facts and Democrats: like garlic to vampires.
So a retard 'rat and a Muzzie retard 'rat don't want to be reminded that they are squandering the future of the children/future of the US?
The 'Rats and the LSM lead me to make the same mistake multiple times/day.
only libtard communists think the debt clock is a political prop.
it should be in huge numerals hanging over their chamber glaring them in the face every damn day.
with symbolic respect to waters’ request, the clock will only be shown when democrats speak.
The Red/Black Tweedle Dee and the Black/Islamic Tweedle Dumber.
Sort of a two-person insane asylum. AND WE ARE PAYING THEIR SALARIES.
But the DemoCraps love `ideologically driven’ props & signs when it’s to THEIR advantage.
And the proper response from the Republicans should have been to put forth a bill Mandating the very same Debt Clock in Every Classroom in America. For the Children.
Eurocrats have no souls. Their souls are possessed by the Devil and have been for a long time now.
Who’s the bigger whining b*tch? Maxine or Keith X ?
Steyn, author of After America: Get Ready for Armageddon, recalled that Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi had made a similar erroneous statement suggesting 500 million jobs could be lost without passage of Obamas 2009 stimulus.
I didnt really 500 million jobs a month would be lost, he said. Thats the entire population of the United States, plus Canada, plus the United Kingdom, plus Germany, plus Australia losing their jobs every month. I mean, thats the thing. These guys cant stand up in public and demonstrate any reliable.
Why is it any surprise that they accidentally spent $16 trillion dollars they dont have? Theyve got no grasp of numbers, these guys.
