GOP Attempting To Sabotage Economy

imageWith John Boehner threatening to repeat last summer’s default crisis that rattled our markets and brought the Tea Party Downgrade, even the AP is asking "Is the GOP trying to sabotage the economy to hurt Obama?" The answer is yes. Here’s how to lean into this message so it keeps gaining traction.

Republicans in Congress want Obama to fail more than they want to help Americans succeed. That’s no way to lead.

Our leaders need to set aside politics and put Americans first. Republican leaders admit their top political priority is defeating the President. So it’s no surprise they won’t help America win — they’d rather Obama lose.

Since the President does better when America does better, they’re doing everything they can to sabotage our economic recovery. They’re threatening to take our economy to the brink of default and economic disaster again just to get more spending cuts, which will mean more layoffs. Either way is lose-lose for America. Politicians who want their political opponents to fail more than they want Americans to succeed have no business leading our nation.


ATTACKS AND RESPONSES

ATTACK: "It’s absurd to accuse Republicans of trying to sabotage the economy."
RESPONSE:

  • Republican politicians admit their top priority is defeating Obama. Since the President does better when America does better, they’re doing everything they can to sabotage our economic recovery.
  • So it’s no wonder they fought so hard to cut millions of American jobs, lay off our firefighters, teachers, and nurses, and force through the Ryan-Romney budget to kill 4 million more jobs.
  • Now Republicans in Congress are again trying to take our country to the brink of default and economic disaster by threatening not to pay America’s bills.

ATTACK: "The deficit and debt are creating a cloud of uncertainty that’s harming economic growth."
