RNC Chairman Reince Priebus Disputes President Obama's $5 Trillion Dollar Tax Cut Claim
With just 30 days until the election, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus sat down with Shannon Bream to react to the first presidential debate. President Obama has tried to make the case that America is moving in the right direction and can’t afford to turn back now.
Priebus said that if the latest job report is factually correct, then it is news great for the country. However, he said, “The problem we have here is we’ve got the Democrats that are bragging about scoring field goals when we need touchdowns.”
He said that President Obama is not living up to the promises he made to the American people. “The empty chair showed up on Wednesday night because he didn’t have a safe zone and he couldn’t defend his record.”
The president brought up Mitt Romney’s plan that Democrats say would lead to a $5 trillion dollar tax cut, though Romney argues that it will be offset by closing loopholes. Bream asked Priebus how Romney plans on justifying the cuts he is proposing. He maintained that it’s not a $5 trillion dollar tax cut and that the details will be hatched out by a committee on how to make the budget revenue neutral.
