Debt has increased $5 trillion since speaker Polosi Vowed, no new Deficit Spending.

Pelosi, the 60th speaker of the U.S. House of representatives, has added more to the national debt then the first 557 House Speakers combined.

No, it's the FACT that you blame Bush, when DEMOCRATS were in control of Congress for the last two years of his presidency, and thus began the FOUR YEAR spending spree!
Here, take a look again at the spending before and after 2007!!

Pardon me, 2000...
By 9/28/2001 (after 9-11) the numbers were much higher $5.807463 trillion(ND) $133.29 billion(D)... So, if you are using the rationale that because Bush was much higher that means Clinton was balanced, you are seriously flawed.
