The Republican National Committee has responded to President Obama’s ‘to-do’ list for Congress with a list of its own.

The GOP’s version, labeled the ‘not done’ list, includes five promises Obama made during his 2008 campaign that Republicans say he has failed to make good on.

Among them are cutting the federal deficit in half during his first-term in office, reducing health premiums for Americans by $2,500, putting the country on a path to energy independence, changing the culture in Washington, D.C. and preventing up to nine million homeowners avoid foreclosure.

Earlier in the day, Obama meet with congressional leaders from both parties to discuss his checklist, which features a slew of measures aimed at encouraging small businesses to hire more employees.
