(CNN) – National Democrats will release a new Web video Tuesday criticizing two House Republican leaders who have disparaged President Obama’s budget plan.
The Democratic National Committee accuses House Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, and House Minority Whip Eric Cantor, R-Virginia, of being hypocrites for voting for former President Bush’s budgets, but now publicly opposing Obama’s proposal.
“Over eight years, Republicans nearly doubled the national debt,” reads text that flashes across the screen of the 30-second video. “John Boehner and Eric Cantor were with Bush every step of the way. Now, Washington Republicans want you to forget what they did.”
The video – "Party Of Hypocrites" – uses short sound bites from Boehner and Cantor knocking the Democratic president’s budget and then notes that Boehner voted for nearly $10 trillion in budget spending, and Cantor supported slightly more than $12 trillion during the Bush years.
House Minority Leader John Boehner's spokeswoman and House Minority Whip Eric Cantor's spokesman respond to the DNC video.
"We missed the part of the video where they defend the President’s massive, fiscally-irresponsible budget that will double the debt in five years and triple it in 10. When the President’s Budget Director concedes they are raising the deficit to unsustainable levels, I guess they have to blame everyone else."
- Antonia Ferrier, spokeswoman for House Minority Leader John Boehner
"As we close in on President Obama's first 100 days, I would ask Virginia's Governor Tim Kaine if his partisan attack ads and disinformation campaigns are a calculated rejection of the President's attempts to change Washington.”
- Brad Dayspring, spokesman for House Minority Whip Eric Cantor
