WASHINGTON - The Republican National Committee (RNC) has released a new web video "58 Trillion Dimes," highlighting President Obama's blatant hypocrisy when claiming he won't raise the debt "a single dime." We've been down this road before with President Obama, who claimed that his policies and plans, including Obamacare, wouldn't cost "a single dime" when in fact our national debt has increased by trillions of dollars.
"In his State of the Union address, the president absurdly claimed his policies won't 'increase our deficit by a single dime,' but Americans won't fall for that empty promise again," said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.
"We've heard these words before, and yet President Obama's out-of-control spending has increased the debt by 58.6 trillion dimes. Without smart spending cuts and real reform, he will add trillions of more dimes to our debt. The disconnect between the president's rhetoric and record just proves that when it comes to deficit reduction, he is simply not serious. His words aren't worth a dime."
