At her final press conference, she claimed that "Deficit reduction has been a high priority for us. It is our mantra, pay-as-you-go."
The problem with this statement is that it is blatantly false. As Fox Nation reports:
When the Pelosi Democrats took control of Congress on January 4, 2007, the national debt stood at $8,670,596,242,973.04. The last day of the 111th Congress and Pelosi's Speakership on December 22, 2010 the national debt was $13,858,529,371,601.09 - a roughly $5.2 trillion increase in just four years. Furthermore, the year over year federal deficit has roughly quadrupled during Pelosi's four years as speaker, from $342 billion in fiscal year 2007 to an estimated $1.6 trillion at the end of fiscal year 2010.There should have been a ticker for every false claim that Pelosi has made in her last press conference.
As Doug Powers points out, if what the former Speaker said is true, then a graph of the national debt should probably look a little more horizontal.
