Obama Embarks On Midwest Bus Tour
President Barack Obama began a bus tour of the Midwestern United States to combat Republican assertions that have arisen from the first series of GOP debates, The Washington Times reported.
The President launched the tour in an effort to counter fears Americans have about the current state of the economy. Obama told the crowd that the debt debacle and several other problems facing the economy were caused by a lack of help from Republicans in Congress, according to the newspaper.
“I put a deal before the Speaker of the House, John Boehner, that would have solved this problem,” Obama said. “And he walked away. His belief was we can’t ask anything of millionaires and billionaires and big corporations. Think about that. I mean, that’s just not common sense.”
This attack on the Republican party came after Warren Buffett wrote to The New York Times about how the super-wealthy are coddled by Washington. The billionaire asserted that the rich should pay more taxes to help pull the country out of the recession, CNN reported.
