Helping rich the "only" thing that binds GOP

Politico reports:

President Obama, speaking to a very friendly Al Sharpton as part of a round with black broadcasters Thursday, offered a harsh assessment of the GOP -- arguing that their opposition to taxing the wealthy was the only thing keeping an otherwise deeply divided party from falling apart.

Speaking about the looming sequester deadline, Obama said: "My sense is that their basic view is that nothing is important enough to raise taxes on wealthy individuals or corporations, and they would rather see [billions in sequester cuts to social programs]... That's the thing that binds their party together at this point." Facebook Fark Furl
