WASHINGTON - The Republican National Committee (RNC) has released a new web video, "Smoke and Mirrors," on the heels of President Obama’s disappointment of a budget proposal. Barack Obama claims ‘the numbers work’ inside his FY 2014 budget; however, the President’s own debt charts tell a different story. With the help of a little ‘smoke and mirrors,’ Barack Obama managed to move his budget from busted to balanced in a single year.
"Obama’s budget of warmed-over ideas and gimmicks was panned by Republicans and Democrats alike,’” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. “He may claim his budget doesn’t have a lot of ‘smoke and mirrors,’ but it relies on more of the same tax hikes, outrageous spending, debt and gimmicks that we’ve seen before. And unlike the House Republicans’ budget, we waited 65 days for something that doesn’t even balance. Mr. President, recycling old budgets isn’t leadership, it’s a sign of someone who isn’t serious about fixing our nation’s serious economic problems.”
