Statements about Debt

 "Forty-six cents of every dollar" Ohio could get for Medicaid expansion "is going to come from China or some other country that doesn’t like us very much."

The national debt is "larger than our entire annual economy."

"Our debt now is about $140,000 per household."

"Quite frankly, it was during the Bush years of spending, multiplied now by the Obama years that we have this mess."

The national debt of $16 trillion, is "enough to buy both the Cleveland Indians and Cincinnati Reds 1,918 times."

"Since President Obama took office, over 88,000 Ohio workers have lost their jobs."

"The president went on a stimulus-fueled spending binge that stuck every American man, woman and child with a $50,000 share of this $16 trillion debt."

"$16 trillion (the national debt) in $1 bills would cover the entire state of Ohio nearly 1.5 times."
