Nancy Pelosi Promised No New Deficit Spending, Ran Deficit up $5 Trillion in Less Than 4 Years

Remember Nancy Pelosi's 2007 "Pay as you go" promise?

How is she doing?

Via CNS News:
At the close of business on Jan. 4, 2007, Pelosi’s first day as speaker, the national debt was $8,670,596,242,973.04 (8.67 trillion), according to theBureau of the Public Debt, a division of the U.S. Treasury Department. At the close of business on Oct. 22, it stood at $13,667,983,325,978.31 (13.67 trillion), an increase of 4,997,387,083,005.27 (or approximately $5 trillion).

Nancy Pelosi lied.
