The headline of the National Republican Congressional Committee's latest blog post reads, "Democrats Borrow The Future With No Plan For Debt Reduction." The post pretends that President Obama's speech proposing major debt reduction over the next decade never happened, and makes the strange argument that a White House effort to protect the U.S.'s credit rating from Standard & Poor's proves "Democrats have been in full out denial" about the debt. The NRCC apparently wasn't paying attention two weeks ago when the Congressional Progressive Caucus introduced a budget resolution titled "The People's Budget," a mirror image of the Republican scheme to undo the social safety net in order to finance a huge tax cut for the rich. That's just one of four debt-reduction plans offered by Democrats this month. Ironically, by showing more interest in name-calling than in engaging with the ideas Democrats actually put forward, the NRCC's researchers only further the fears that drove S&P to downgrade its expectations for U.S. debt in the first place.

In a last ditch attempt to derail Democratic efforts to expand health care coverage, the National Republican Congressional Committee is launching a robocall campaign to spread lies and scare voters. In contrast to the NRCC's lies, health care reform will lower health insurance premiums and create up to 4 million American jobs.

By focusing their energy on Pelosi, Republicans are simply reaffirming that they have run out of serious ideas.

The National Republican Congressional Committee produced a series of ads falsely claiming the American Clean Energy and Security Act would "destroy jobs" and "cost middle-class families $1,800 a year." In reality, the bill would create jobs in every state and help America become more energy independent, all for the price of a postage stamp per day.
