President Barack Obama accused Republicans in Congress of intentionally promoting policies that “harm million of Americans” on Thursday at a technical college in Los Angeles.
While Obama made his pitch for legislation to close loopholes U.S. corporations use to avoid paying taxes, he attacked the GOP-controlled House of Representatives.
“What really is going on is that Republicans in Congress are directly blocking policy that would help million of Americans,” Obama said. “They are promoting policies that harm million of Americans.”
Republicans are “going in the wrong direction,” the president said, adding, “Our economy doesn’t grow form the top down; it grows form the middle class out.”
