GOP: $18 Trillion Debt ‘Sad Milestone for America’

GOP: $18 Trillion Debt ‘Sad Milestone for America’

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus is blasting President Barack Obama over the fact that U.S. debt has soared past $18 trillion. 

“This is a sad milestone for America. Under President Obama’s failed leadership, the national debt has skyrocketed by over $7.3 trillion,” said Priebus.

He added, “President Obama once said it was ‘unpatriotic’ and ‘irresponsible’ to add $4 trillion to the debt… He has the worst record of any president when it comes to putting America deeper in debt.” 

Indeed, under Obama, U.S. debt has skyrocketed 70%. When Obama took office on January 21, 2009, America’s debt stood at $10.625 trillion. 

Still, Obama maintains that under his economic leadership, America is better by every economic measure.

“By every economic measure, we are better off now than when I took office,” Obama said in October.
