Obama sees ‘make or break’ time for middle class

OSAWATOMIE, Kan. (AP) – President Barack Obama is taking aim at the nation’s income disparities, declaring that the middle class
faces a “make or break moment.” He told a Kansas audience that Republicans embrace a discredited “you’re-on-your own” style of
economics. Obama returned to his mother’s home state to invoke big themes of economic fairness, similar to ones once delivered by President Theodore Roosevelt in the same rural town. He once again called for extending a payroll tax cut, and for wealthier taxpayers to carry a bigger tax burden.
