GOP Slams Obama & Dems On Historic Debt in Weekly Address

Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) blasted Democrats and President Obama today in the Weekly GOP Address–
Under President Obama, the nation’s debt is so high already that the US would not qualify to join the European Union if we wanted to.

And, that’s not all…
** Barack Obama signed the largest spending bill, the “Stimulus” Package, in the history of the planet in his first 100 days in office without a single GOP House vote.
** Obama and democrats pushed and passed the largest budget in history without a single GOP House or Senate vote.
** Obama’s budget more than doubles the national debt held by the public, and adds more to the debt than all previous presidents — from George Washington to George W. Bush — combined.
** Barack Obama managed to spend more than the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan combined.
** Obama and democrats have already saddled America’s children and grand children with massive debt before they’re even born! Not that this bothers them.
** Barack Obama is on track to spend more money than any person in the history of Earth.
** The US debt is so large that America couldn’t qualify to join the EU if it wanted to.
** President Obama expects the deficit level to be 12% of GDP this year larger than Great Britain’s record 10% deficit to GDP.

According to Heritage, Obama will quadruple the deficit this year.

It took Obama and the Democrats less than 100 to spend more than Bush spent on Iraq, Afghanistan and Katrina… Combined!
Yes. It’s time Republicans start speaking out on how Democrats are destroying the economy.
Good job, Senator Alexander.
