Obama attacks Republicans for being in the pocket of business
President Barack Obama painted Republicans as obstructionist allies of corporate America on Monday as he crossed the United States campaigning for his fellow Democrats fighting to keep control of the Congress and for state governorships in November's elections.
At a battery plant in Wisconsin Obama sought to convince voters he can ease high unemployment and has a plan to fix a slowing economy in which fears have grown of a double-dip recession.
He accused Republicans of trying to turn back the clock by resisting his administration's efforts to bolster the sagging economy.
"They said 'no' to small business tax cuts, 'no' to rebuilding infrastructure, 'no' to clean energy projects. They even voted against getting rid of tax breaks for shipping jobs overseas," Obama said. . . .
