WASHINGTON – The Republican National Committee releases “Obama-Biden Hypocrisy on Debt" a reminder of the Obama/Biden “promise gap” when it comes to spending. In 2008, when Joe Biden visited Maumee, Ohio, he was puzzled about the size of the national debt. Today, when Barack Obama goes to the very town where Biden once asked ‘Who are these guys?’ the president can tell them it was under their administration that America had three consecutive trillion dollar deficits and added over $5 trillion to the national debt.

“There is a Grand Canyon size ‘promise gap’ between what Vice President Biden said about spending the last time he was in Maumee, Ohio and what he and President Obama have actually done in office,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. “America needs Governor Romney who has a record of turning deficits into surpluses and knows what it means to make a payroll. We need to send him to Washington to get our spending under control and country back on track.”
