Amusing: Congressional Democrats ask to have national debt clock turned off...

Can you blame them? They own the last 6 trillion.

Via The Daily Caller:
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.
Republicans agreed to turn it off while democrats speak. I wouldn't have given them that much.
