    Is there any other time in history when the Speaker of the House was blamed for the national budget?

    Bill, stop it!!! I'm agreeing with you too much:smilewinkgrin:

    Remember, Nancy did not spend it, it also took the Senate and the President. She may have been part of the problem - but not the entire problem.
    Me thinks its good that one Party does not control the full Congress and the White House

    and as far as spending more than the first 40 some speakers - is that 2010 dollars? You did take into account inflation didn't you

    Good point.

    It would have been even more if she had gotten her way on everything. She got what she wanted far too often as it is.
