Rep. John Culberson Responds to the President's Claims that He Won't Increase the Deficit


Location: Washington, DC

Congressman John Culberson (TX-07) issued the following response to President Obama's State of the Union address:

"Last night, President Obama told us his proposals "are fully paid for and fully consistent with the budget framework both parties agreed to just 18 months ago. Let me repeat -- nothing I'm proposing tonight should increase our deficit by a single dime.' It is not believable for him to tell us his proposals will not increase the deficit. We've heard it before.

"In December 2009, the president told us "[a]nd I've insisted from the beginning that health care reform will not add one dime to our deficit.' But, last week CBO came out with a new report saying the cost of Obamacare has risen to more than $1.3 trillion.

"President Obama has created more debt and bigger deficits than any president in history, and he has aggressively grown the government, expanded its power, extended regulations into virtually every corner of our lives, and driven federal spending to the highest level since World War II."
