Washington, DC – Correct The Record released the following statement on tonight’s GOP debate:

    “Ten candidates trying to outdo each other on the same out-of-touch, out-of-date rhetoric isn’t a debate, it’s an embarrassment,” said Brad Woodhouse, President of Correct The Record. “Even when you factor in the seven other candidates in the 5 o’clock cheap seats, there is little diversity to be found in the Republican Party’s backward agenda:

    ·         “At the Kids’ Table debate, ‘abortion’ or ‘Planned Parenthood’ were mentioned 19 times, while ‘the Middle Class’ was not mentioned one single time. At the Prime Time debate, they stepped up their game, managing to mention the Middle Class a whopping two times-but the obsession with attacking women’s health continued.

    ·         “The GOP candidates failed to offer any ideas on how to move our country forward. Instead, they spit out the same extreme, predictable talking points we’ve heard for years. Although some were even crazier than usual:

    o   Huckabee wants to tax pimps and prostitutes to “fix” Social Security, and wants to return the military’s mission to “kill[ing] people” and “break[ing] things.”

    o   Jeb!’s economic growth quick fix? Repeal Obamacare, stripping healthcare away from millions of Americans.

    o   Trump wants to build the hugest, classiest border fence in history.

    o   Rubio went out of his way to stress that he is opposed to women’s choice even in the case of the life of the woman.

    o   And Walker wants to continue to fight marriage equality.

    ·         “As a candidate declared during the debate, ‘If this election is going to be a resume competition, then Hillary Clinton is going to be the next president.’ That’s about the only thing we could agree with tonight.

    “Put simply, the GOP’s tarnished brand was on display tonight for the whole country to see, and the contrast with Hillary Clinton’s forward-looking agenda couldn’t be clearer. A Republican Party that wants to gut Social Security, gut women’s rights, gut Obamacare and gut the middle class just isn’t ready for prime time, no matter how many candidates take the stage.”
