ICYMI: Chairman Priebus: “Democrats’ Debt Limit Doubletalk”

Reince Priebus - October 10, 2013

Excerpts from National Review


By: RNC Chairman Reince Priebus
October 10, 2013


Democrats refuse to sit down at the negotiating table with Republicans because they insist that funding the government and raising the debt ceiling aren’t subject to negotiation. Republicans believe this is an opportunity to get our fiscal house in order, but Democrats just want to up the limit on their credit card. And bizarrely, they claim that’s the way it’s always been done.
 
They must be suffering from a bout of amnesia.
 
In 2006… then-Senator Obama voted against raising the debt ceiling… The same was true for then-Senator Joe Biden, who also voted against raising the debt ceiling in 1984…

 
***


Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are no better. They both have voted against increasing the debt ceiling in the past when they didn’t get what they wanted…

But the Democrats are engaging in more than just rhetorical hypocrisy. The president has claimed that debt ceiling increases have never “in the history of the United States” been accompanied by negotiations on other issues. Of course, that’s simply false….
 

***

 
President Obama and the Democrats don’t want to make any concessions to the American people… And in order to get their way, they’re trying to rewrite history, hoping the country won’t notice.
 
America literally cannot afford to let them get away with it.
