Reince Priebus: Republicans Have ‘Specifics Coming Out Of Our Eyeballs’

Speaking with George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s This Week, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus answered charges by critics of the GOP that his party has avoided outlining specific policy recommendations for voters. Priebus took exception to the charge, saying that Republicans have “specifics coming out of our eyeballs.”

“I’ll tell you about specifics,” said the Republican National Committee chairman. “First of all, Mitt Romney talks about, all the time, about reducing the GDP spending from 25 cents on the dollar down to 20, reducing small business taxes from 35 to 25, reducing income taxes across the board by 20 percent.”

“As far as specifics go, we’re the only ones talking about how to save Medicare,” Priebus continued. “The president’s the one that raided Medicare by $700 billion.”

“We put Paul Ryan on the ticket,” Priebus said. “There can’t be anything more specific than a budget that we passed to get a hold of the 10-year debt window, the deficits that are out of control that the president promised that he would fix.”

He said that the Republicans and their presidential nominee needed to keep repeating those specifics and hammering President Barack Obama on his party’s lack of a plan for a second term.
