President Obama re-mixed his typical mockery of Republican tax cuts today, suggesting that Republicans would rather give Americans a tax cut instead of an iPhone.
During his speech, he mocked the Republican idea that tax cuts would grow the economy.
“Basically their plan was one that you had heard before: If we cut more taxes, everybody is going to be okay.” Obama said, and continued to joke about tax cuts.
“You need to make a restaurant reservation, you don’t need the new iPhone — here’s a tax cut for that,” Obama said to the crowd, imitating Republicans. “You want to learn a new language? Try a tax cut. Tax cut to lose a few extra pounds. Whatever ails you.”
