Worst. Speaker. Ever. Pelosi Increased National Deficit Eightfold During Reign

Just how bad of a Speaker was Nancy Pelosi?
Well, if results and facts matter then she is the worst House Speaker in US history. During her tyranical reign the San Francisco socialist increased the national deficit eightfold.

Pelosi set the record.

During Pelosi’s first year as Speaker in 2007 the deficit was $160 billion. The national deficit last year reached a all-time record of $1.4 Trillion after the failed stimulus and record spending by the democrats. This was more than eight times larger than what it was when Pelosi and democrats took over in 2007. The deficit will come close this year to matching last year’s record.
No wonder these radicals are not running on their record!

And if that is not bad enough… The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office predicted earlier this year that Obama’s budget plans would generate deficits over the upcoming decade that would total $9.8 trillion.

No wonder Speaker Nancy Pelosi remains the most unpopular of the four top congressional leaders today.

    I deeply adore the use of the past tense in the question, how bad “was” Speaker Pelosi?”

  • befuddled

    what did anyone expect, when the dems are out of office, they bide their time working on their shopping list.

    sorry to say, unforturnately, she’s very popular. she has enriched herself, her family, friends, acquaintances, and business partners along with a host of democrats and liberal donors. when liberals have control of all media, education, and governance they have a huge treasure chest to pull funds from. in that aspect, San Fran Values Pelosi brings home the bacon.

    You are doing a dis-service to us conservatives by continuing to use that chart. Obama and the Democrats spending is bad enough that we don’t need to make stuff up about it.

    If you add up the deficits in that graph, you get about $2.1 trillion added to the debt. Contrast that with the numbers from http://www.treasurydirect.gov/NP/BPDLogin?application=np
    which shows that Bush added $4.9 trillion to the debt over 8 years, $2.8 trillion more than is reported in the graph in this post. That averages out to about $220 billion deficit spending per year that is left off the graph.

    Using the numbers from the Treasury site, Bush’s deficits averaged $600 billion per year and that includes the two years there was a surplus or averaging $800 billion a year over 6 years.

    Contrast that with Obama’s $1.4 trillion deficit last year and another $1.4 trillion deficit this year.

    Neither president has a stellar record on spending and Obama is on pace to out spend Bush’s 8 years before his first term is up but it hasn’t happened yet.

    @ Espresso Logic

    Sorry I am not trying to troll here. I just think us conservatives don’t need to make things up in order to criticize Obama.

    We should be arming ourselves with accurate information, so that when we get in arguments with the left, we can win them based on the facts.

    I don’t like losing arguments because I linked to Heritage or GWP only to have treasury data refuting the graph in this post, thrown back in my face.

    Go play around on http://www.treasurydirect.gov/NP/BPDLogin?application=np If you have some information to explain the discrepancies, I would love to hear them.
