Nothing has been the same since Nancy Pelosi (CA-D) became Speaker of the House in January 2007. In fact, US public debt was at $8.68 trillion when she was handed the gavel and US public debt now sits at $31.55 trillion. That is a whopping 264% increase in the nation’s debt under free-spending SanFranNan. To Pelosi, there is no such thing as too much debt.
To be fair, Pelosi had plenty of help. We had Barack Obama and Joe Biden assume the Presidency in 2009 and in between we had RINOs (Republicans in name only) John Boenher and Paul Ryan as House speakers. In the Senate, the US has had Harry Reid (NV-D), Chuck Schumer (NY-D) and breifly Mitch McConnell (KY-R) as majority leaders. Of course, he had Donald Trump as President for 4 years then a return to the Obama-Biden Presidency with Old Joe as President for the past 2 years.
This chart show how deranged Congress and the Administration became since 2007. On October 3, 2008, President George W. Bush signed the $700 billion Emergency Economic Stabilization Act (EESA) of 2008 after Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson asked Congress to approve a bailout to buy mortgage-backed securities that were in danger of defaulting.
I find it sad that a House panel voted to designated Pelosi as House Speaker Emerita for her “leadership” in helping to spend the US into bankruptcy. Look at the trajectory of public debt since Pelosi assumed the position of Spender of The House in 2007.
Since 2007, the US has expereienced a housing bubble burst and ensuing financial crisis (2008/2009), then a Covid economic shutdown in 2020 requiring (in the mind of Statists) massive Federal spending in the form of Covid Relief (aka, the American Rescue Plan) for $1.9 TRILLION, then Infrastructure Spending bill for $1 TRILLION, the Inflation Reduction Act (really a green energy spending bill dressed up as an inflation reduction measure) and the infamous pork-laden Omnibus bill. All this Federal spending has driven up M2 Money by 200% since Pelosi first became House speaker.
Look at the chart of M2 Money Velocity (GDP/M2 Money) since Pelosi became House Speaker. It has collapsed.
Pelosi is also notable for her “You have to pass the bill to see what’s in it” speech on the Affordable Care Act and childishly tearing up on camera a copy of Donald Trump’s State of the Union address.
Meanwhile, the US has $181.5 Trillion in UNFUNDED LIABILITIES that will require MORE debt to be issue. Social Security unfunded liability is now $22.46 trillion and Medicare unfunded liability is up to $35 trillion. But if you dare mention “reform” to these massive entitlement boondoggles, President Biden and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer will say “Republicans want to take away your Social Security!” That isn’t what Rick Scott (FL-R) said.
Unfunded liabilities per citizen is now $542,457. I propose that all illegal immigrants crossing the Mexican border (or Canadian border) per forced to pay their share of unfunded liabilities as an entry fee..
While Congress debates cutting spending (Hint: Childish Biden and Schumer said no to any cuts to spending), the US Debt Star gets closer to completion.
