WASHINGTON – The Republican National Committee released a new web video “Unpatriotic Debt” highlighting Barack Obama’s “promise gap” on lowering the debt and deficit. Four years ago today at a campaign event, Candidate Obama said that adding $4 trillion to the debt was “irresponsible” and “unpatriotic.” During his three years in office the “undisputed debt king” has added over $5 trillion to the national debt and has racked up the largest deficits in U.S. history.
“President Obama has done nothing to offer solutions or make the tough choices to correct America’s major economic problems. Instead, he has only sent the country on an unsustainable path by adding to the national debt and producing four budgets with deficits in excess of $1 trillion. We simply cannot afford four more years of the promise gap of his first term,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. “This November, voters will hear his past promises to America and see that he can hardly call his actions of Big Government spending as patriotic.
“Governor Romney knows what it takes to balance a budget and control government spending. As president, he will provide America with the leadership and fiscal responsibility that will fix America’s debt and deficit problem and put the country back on the right path.”
