“What happened to all this concern about deficits? You weren’t concerned when you gave me a tax cut I didn’t need or ask for,” Obama stated. “Look none of this is conservative. This is not normal what we’re seeing, it is radical. It’s a vision that says that it’s more important for those who are currently in power to protect that power even if it hurts the country.” (RELATED: Trump, Republicans ‘Didn’t Even Break A Sweat’ – Obama Takes Credit For Economic Success)
He continued, “Frankly, instead of being a check or a balance on this kind of behavior, what you’re seeing is Republicans in Congress, who are bending over backward trying to shield and deflect oversight of this behavior from scrutiny and accountability and consequences.”
Obama was in Ohio campaigning on behalf of gubernatorial candidate Rich Cordray and his running mate Betty Sutton. Cordray was an early supporter of the former president years ago.
