Remember the time when the Chinese Empire invaded following the last increase of the national debt ceiling? Me neither.
A campaign advertisement for a Republican congressional candidate from Nevada that depicts the Chinese army marching on the U.S. Capitol has upset an Asian-American group.
In the ad, a fake Chinese news anchor explains that the Chinese empire was able to rise again thanks to President Barack Obama raising the federal debt limit.
The ad is for Mark Amodei, a Republican candidate for the upcoming special election in Nevada’s 2nd Congressional District. At the end of the ad, he says that it is not too late to stop “this nightmare.”
Curiously, the Bush Administration presided over seven separate increases of the national debt ceiling and the Chinese never invaded. Were they just waiting for a Democrat to take office?
Is this why Eric Cantor walked out of the budget negotiations today?
