Bankrupting America’s New Video: Talk is Cheap, Overspending is Not #TalkIsCheap

Video Highlights Leaders’ Empty Promises to Address Government Overspending

Arlington, Va. – For years, leaders have been all talk and no action when it comes to tackling our overspending problem, and now Bankrupting America, a project of Public Notice, is calling them out for the empty promises with a new video as part of our “Talk is Cheap, Overspending is Not” campaign that launched in early January.

The video, which features former President Ronald Reagan, former Vice President Al Gore and President Barack Obama, highlights past speeches promising to address the federal government’s overspending. It accompanies ads at the Capitol South and Union Station metro stops in Washington, D.C., as well as online advertising as part of the “Talk is Cheap, Overspending is Not” campaign.

Public Notice Executive Director Gretchen Hamel issued the following statement:

“We’ve heard promises to cut spending for decades now, but the debt continues to grow. While we may have averted the fiscal cliff, we didn’t get any spending cuts in the process.  The fact that we’re approaching another debt ceiling fight should tell Washington that overspending is the problem, and we cannot tax our way out of this $16.4 trillion hole we’re in. If we’re really going to take a balanced approach to reducing the debt, we’ve got to include spending cuts.”

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie gives a news conference in Trenton January 9, 2014.  Christie on Thursday fired a top aide at the center of a brewing scandal that public officials orchestrated a massive traffic snarl on the busy George Washington Bridge to settle a political score. Christie told a news conference he was stunned and heartbroken by revelations that his staff was behind the traffic jam designed to punish a local mayor who declined to endorse Christie's re-election bid.
