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.
“Clearly it is a political prop designed to message ideologically,” Ellison said.
Math is now … ideological. And this is only the second-silliest appearance by Ellison this week.
