RNC Chairman Priebus Statement on the National Debt Exceeding $15 Trillion

- November 16, 2011

WASHINGTON Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement on the national debt exceeding the $15 trillion mark:  

“America has crossed an unthinkable threshold: our national debt now exceeds $15 trillion dollars. That’s more than $48,000 per citizen.

“In 2009, President Obama promised to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term. Instead, he further accelerated its growth, producing three years of record deficits.

“The legacy of Barack Obama is the most rapid increase in the federal debt of any modern president.  In total, he amassed $4.4 trillion in debt in less than three years. While Republicans in Congress are advocating for balanced budgets and spending restraints, Democrats have shown no interest in fiscal responsibility.

“This massive debt slows our economy and damages our credit rating. America simply cannot afford another four years of this president and the Democrats’ reckless spending."
