244 Members of Congress Flunked Arithmetic

TPMLivewire reports:

Every House Republican voted Thursday to reject the proposition that the Bush tax cuts added to the deficit. Joined by just a handful of Democrats, the full Republican conference rejected a measure that would have affirmed what nearly all budget experts and economists recognized: President George W. Bush's debt-financed tax cuts blew up the budget in the last decade, leaving the country in a hole that sank into a chasm after the 2008 financial crisis. The final tally was 174-244.

I guess their next vote will declare that the Earth is flat.
