Terry Jeffrey writes at CNSNews.com:
Americans who follow the workings of our government -- even if only casually -- presumably know that the Republican Party took control of the U.S. House of Representatives in the November 2010 elections.
Fewer likely know that the Republican-controlled House gained a veto over federal spending on March 4, 2011.
Fewer still may know that from March 4, when the Republican-controlled House gained that veto over spending, through Nov. 14, the national debt increased by $795,257,695,953.36.
That works out to about $6,766 each for what the Census Bureau estimates are 117,538,000 American households.
Jeffrey concludes: "We are as much in need of great leaders today as at anytime in our history. We will not find them among those who now run Congress."
