Rep. Camp Blames Obama For Debt From GOP Policies Camp Supported

During a July 28 speech on the House floor, Rep. Dave Camp (R-MI) produced a chart comparing the debt accumulated under the Obama and Bush administrations. According to Camp, "President Obama's actions" have led to "twice the debt in half the time" as his predecessor. However, Camp's wildly misleading assertion blames President Obama for a projected FY 2009 deficit that was already over $1 trillion when he took office, while ignoring the fiscal impact that Bush's policies are still having. Not surprisingly, Camp voted for the Bush policies that caused the deficit to explode.

Surprise! GOP's "Pledge To America" Misleads On Taxes

Today the House Republicans released their midterm election manifesto, dubbed the "Pledge to America." In the Pledge, Republicans claim that in the time since President Obama took office, he and Congressional Democrats have "enacted $680 billion in gross tax increases." However, many of the tax increases the Republicans cite eliminate corporate tax loopholes. Additionally, Republicans ignore the fact that under President Obama federal taxes are at their lowest levels in 60 years and that Obama and Congressional Democrats have cut taxes for 95% of working families.

A GOP Divided On Green Jobs: Rep. Camp vs. Rep. Gingrey

It's well-documented that the GOP can't settle on a party leader or a consistent message, but there is another subject on which Republicans just can't agree: whether or not green jobs actually exist.  Rep. Phil Gingrey says they are "subprime" and "just like leaves on a tree...[they] will fade and in winter, they'll be long gone." On the other hand, Rep. Dave Camp said green jobs would, "put our workers back in jobs and give Michigan's struggling economy a significant boost."

Yesterday, Fox News and other right-wing lobbying groups orchestrated Tea Parties across the country in an effort to spread the message that the American people have been "Taxed Enough Already."
