WASHINGTON, Aug. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus issued the following statement today following the passage of the debt limit deal:
"While not perfect, this law is a welcome sign that Washington is beginning to move in the right direction to get spending under control and our economy back on track. Obama was dragged kicking and screaming to the negotiating table as Republicans once again changed the conversation away from his agenda of higher taxes and more spending. This is just another example of Republicans filling the leadership void to get our country on sound financial footing and create an environment where job creators can start hiring again. On issue after issue, President Obama has been passing the buck instead of leading – reminding us why elections matter and how important it is for Republicans to take back the White House and the Senate in 2012."
