President Obama Speaks at FAU April 10

President Barack Obama made a stop at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton on Tuesday, April 10. President Obama discussed the Buffett Rule and fairness in the tax code, eliciting chants of "four more years" from the more than 4,000 who attended. He compared the Republican "trickle-down" tax strategy to a failed science experiment. "In this country, prosperity has never trickled down from the wealthy few. Prosperity has always come from the bottom up, from a strong and growing middle class," Obama said.
