There’s been much talk about Obama’s “legacy,” some saying that Trump will unravel much of it in the first 100 days. But, the RNC has published some telling numbers and are calling THIS Obama’s legacy. What is it? DEBT!
The Washington Times reports – The Republican National Committee has assembled some telling numbers as President Obama prepares to leave office and do other things. “Obama touts his legacy, but the numbers tell a different story,” the committee notes in a lengthy analysis of hard data, all current and gleaned primarily from federal sources.

• $19.9 trillion: “The staggering mountain of debt Obama will leave behind on January 20, 2017.” Source: Treasury Department.
• $9.2 trillion: “The increase in the national debt since Obama took office.” Source: Treasury Department.
• $1 trillion: “Tax increases in Obamacare over a decade.” Source: House Committee on Ways and Means.
• $870.3 billion: “Estimated economic cost of new federal government regulations finalized since Obama took office.”
