    Michael Sandoval is covering the Colorado Senate Race for National Review. Today he reported this bombshell…
    Liberal democrat Michael Bennet told supporters that although the US Senate has spent trillions since he was appointed, they have achieved nothing:
    Sen. Michael Bennet’s recent appearance in Greeley, Colorado is sure to set political tongues wagging–Bennet is quoted as saying that though trillions of dollars of Federal debt has been incurred through spending since he was appointed to the Senate in January of 2009, “we have nothing to show for it”:
    Michael Bennet, D-Colo,at a town hall meeting in Greeley last Saturday, Aug 21 said we had nothing to show for the debt incurred by the stimulus package and other expenditures calling the recession the worst since the Great Depression. [...]
    Regarding spending during his time in office he said, “We have managed to acquire $13 trillion of debt on our balance sheet” and, “in my view we have nothing to show for it.”

    wow exactly what I said their spending would achieve.

    At best a small up tick followed by more pain when the money runs out.
