RNC Chairman Priebus Statement on Passage of the Budget Control Act

- July 29, 2011

WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus issued the following statement today following the passage of the Budget Control Act in the U.S. House of Representatives:

“While President Obama continues to insist on having a $2.4 trillion blank check so he can continue his spending spree through the next election, Republicans have passed their second plan to address America’s debt crisis and prevent potential disaster for our economy. The contrast in leadership between President Obama, who has failed to offer any concrete plans, and the House Republicans could not be more stark. Republicans admit this bill is not perfect, but it contains serious spending cuts that exceed the size of the debt ceiling increase and is a positive step towards meaningful deficit reduction. President Obama and Senator Reid are all that stand between the American people and an end to this crisis. President Obama may not want to address our $14.3 trillion debt problem again before the 2012 election but it’s time the Democrats start putting the country ahead of their re-election campaigns.”
