Washington, DC - The House Republican Conference released a new video today on Democrats budget failure.
VIDEO: OBAMA IN JANUARY 2010
OBAMA: Like any cash strapped family, we will work within a budget to invest in what we need, and sacrifice what we don’t. And if I have to enforce this discipline by veto, I will.
TEXT ON SCREEN: BREAKING NEWS ALERT
We interrupt Washington’s regularly scheduled promise-making to bring you this important breaking news update.
Good afternoon. We've just received word that the Federal budget has been cancelled.
Are you sure? Cancelled???
Yes, it's confirmed: the House of Representatives budget for fiscal year 2011 has been cancelled.
The cause we’re told is Washington Democrats’ out-of-control spending spree.
So we're here outside the Capitol right now awaiting word from those Washington Democrats, presumably an apology for the betrayal of hard-working American taxpayers.
We're trying to get a sense of the fallout from this decision.
But bear with us; nothing like this has ever happened before in the modern era.
Ah, here, here we go -- This budget failure means:
MORE wasteful Washington spending
MORE wasteful Washington spending paid for by borrowing from our kids and grandkids
MORE wasteful Washington spending paid for by borrowing from our kids and grandkids AND raising taxes on middle-class families
This budget failure also means
NO plan to create jobs.
NO plan to create small business jobs
NO leadership on the economy
NO leadership, period.
A staggering list. Alright…
Well again, we’re awaiting an apology from Washington Democrats, but for now, stay tuned for a word from our sponsor.
This broadcast has been brought to you by House Republicans, who have better solutions to cut spending now and make Washington DC live within our means. Making the tough choices, just like every small business, family, and family farm does every day.
