Hope, change and the deficit

I heard an interesting statistic today. When the Democrats first took control of Congress under Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, our national deficit was 360 billion dollars. Today, the national deficit is 1.6 Trillion dollars.

In other words (for those of us who are mathematically challenged), when Pelosi and Reid took over our deficit was 360 billion. It is now 1,600 billion dollars! And that's just the deficit. The national debt is MUCH higher!

That's not much hope but it is certainly a lot of change!
