Democracy Now: Obama Slams Romney Education Plan in Nevada Visit


President Obama hit the campaign trail in Nevada on Wednesday with a focus on his and Republican rival Mitt Romney’s competing plans on education. Speaking at a high school in Las Vegas, Obama said Romney would gut the U.S. school system to help fund tax cuts for the wealthy.

President Obama: “The plan Governor Romney has put forward would cut America’s investment in education by nearly 20 percent. And here’s the thing. He’s not making these cuts because he wants to create jobs or pay down the deficit. He’s doing it to pay for a new $5 trillion tax cut that’s weighted towards the wealthiest Americans.”
