Obama: GOP Budget Makes "Contract With America Look Like The New Deal"

"Maybe when we know that most of today's middle-class jobs require more than a high-school degree. We shouldn't gut education or lay off thousands of teachers or raise interest rates on college loans or take away people's financial aid. But that's exactly the opposite of what they've done," President Obama said at a speech on the economy today.

"Instead of moderating their views even slightly, the Republicans running Congress right now have doubled down and have proposed a budget so far to the right it makes the Contract With America look like the New Deal. In fact, that renowned liberal, Newt Gingrich, first called the original version of the budget radical," he added.
