Hensarling: Democrats Wrecked the Economy!
From Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas)’s opening statement at today’s budget hearing.
Mr. Chairman, we have just spent the last hour listening to our Democrat friends engage in the blame game, in an attempt to re-write history. Yet the last time I checked, the Democrats had control of Congress since January of 2007 and Mr. Chairman, the economy tanked on their watch.
Hensarling used to lead the Republican Study Committee; a few weeks ago I asked his successor, Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) when this became the Democrats’ economy, and he said January 20, 2009.
