Ohio Republican Party Statement on Democrat Downgrade

Columbus - Republican Party Chairman Kevin DeWine released the following statement in response to President Obama's comments on America's debt rating downgrade:

"President Obama and Democrats' spending addiction has driven our national debt to historic proportions, maxed out our national credit card and has now led to the Democrat Downgrade of our country's AAA credit rating. The Democrat Downgrade is a telling reminder of President Obama's shocking lack of leadership and unwillingness to reign in out-of-control spending taxpayers cannot afford," Chairman DeWine said.

"Given the economic realities facing Ohio job creators and families, it's clear that 2012 will be a referendum on the failed job policies outlined by President Obama and his left-hand man, Sherrod Brown."
