Democrats Whine About Presence of Debt Clock on Capitol Hill – “It’s a Political Prop” (Video)

Democrats yesterday were very offended that Republicans would display the National Debt Clock during House Financial Services Committee hearings.

It’s very offensive and distracts them from their spending.
Democrats fear the debt clock like vampires fear the Cross.

The Daily Caller reported:

Some members of Congress apparently don’t 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.
