President Obama is currently touring the country trying to refocus the public on the economy rather than scandal. Here are some quotes from his latest speech:
- “With this endless parade of distractions and political posturing and phony scandals, Washington’s taken its eye off the ball. And I am here to say this needs to stop."
- "Even though our businesses are creating new jobs and have broken record profits, nearly all the income gains of the past 10 years have continued to flow to the top 1%. The average CEO has gotten a raise of nearly 40% since 2009. The average American earns less than he or she did in 1999.
- "This growing inequality, it's not just morally wrong, it's bad economics, reversing these trends must be Washington's highest priority."
- Lastly he said his main focus will be on "how to use every minute of the 1,276 days remaining in my term to make this country work for working Americans again,"
What do you think? Will he really adjust his efforts to focus on the the economy? Or is the redirection to distract people from the scandals and low approval ratings? Comment below:
