Foxnews had these stats up to go with the Nancy Pelosi story ... Thought I'd share:
$162 Billion - National Deficit When Pelosi Took "Over Congress"**
$1.29 TRILLION - national Deficit When She Left Speakership
Fox did a disservice here, Pelosi was never in charge of "Congress" ... She was Speaker of the House. Congress is the collective name for both the Senate AND the House of Representatives ...
And while yes the majority of this jump happened while the Dems were in control of both branches of the Congress - Nancy was only in control of one of them.
