President Obama, this afternoon, blamed Republican tax cuts for the economic crisis that hit America plaguing the economy with slow job growth.

Noting that Congress passed “trillions of dollars in tax cuts” in the last decade, Obama insisted that “it didn’t work.”

“The wealthy got wealthier, but most Americans struggled,” Obama said. “Instead of creating more jobs, we had the slowest job growth in half a century, and instead of widespread prosperity, the typical family saw its income fall.”
