The Center for American Progress took a close look at the Repub “Pledge to America” particularly that part of the pledge where they say they have a new commitment to fiscal responsibility. Guess what. Under the Repub plan, the budget deficit would be about $200 billion LARGER in 2020 than under Obama’s plan. Let the Repubs have their way and according to the Center’s analysis over the next 10 years Repubs would run up deficits $1.5 trillion HIGHER than under Obama’s plan.
Hey Repubs, where’s the fiscal responsibility?
