Speaking at a Univision forum held at the University of Miami today, President Obama responded to a question regarding Mitt Romney’s remarks at a fundraising event in which the Republican nominee expressed disdain for nearly half the American people.
President Obama told the Univision forum audience that he was the President of all Americans:
“I travel around the country all the time and the American people are the hardest working people there. Their problem is not that they’re not working hard enough or they don’t want to work or they’re being taxed too little or they just want to loaf around and gather government checks. We’ve gone through a challenging time. People want a hand up, not a handout. Are there people who abuse the system? Yes. Both at the bottom and at the top. Because their are whole bunch of millionaires who aren’t paying taxes at all either” President Obama said.
