The $4.997-trillion increase in the national debt since she took the gavel is more debt than the federal government amassed from the speakership of Rep. Frederick Muhlenberg of Pennsylvania, who became the first speaker of the House on April 1, 1789, to the start of the speakership of Rep. Newt Gingrich of Georgia, the 58th speaker, who took up the gavel on Jan. 4, 1995.

Debt Has Increased $5 Trillion Since Speaker Pelosi Vowed,

Who cares. Shes a democrat. Lets continue to support their policies

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 the Bureau 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).

So what is your point? We are supposed to suddenly be okay with Bush's spending, because 0bama has tripled it?

$4.3 trillion in eight years was way too freaking much, but it pales when compared to $3 trillion by 0bama in just twenty months. (BTW, the $4.3 trillion includes the $350 billion in TARP funds Bush set aside for 0bama)
