Obama turns attention to income inequality
Christi ParsonsWASHINGTON — President Obama on Wednesday declared an end to the war on budget deficits and pledged instead to fight the "deficit of opportunity" for the poor and middle class.
In a lengthy speech on his economic priorities, Obama said the federal deficit was under control and no longer presented a serious threat to the economy.
"When it comes to our budget, we should not be stuck in a stale debate from two years ago or three years ago," Obama said at a nonprofit social services center in a poor neighborhood in the capital. "A relentlessly growing deficit of opportunity is a bigger threat to our future than our rapidly shrinking fiscal deficit."
