Obama pivots back to class warfare.

(CNSNews.com) – President Barack Obama says his top priority — the “north star” of his second-term — is to do “everything we can to grow the economy and create good, middle-class jobs.” And that means taking more tax money from wealthy Americans, on top of the higher tax rates that Congress went along with a few months ago.

Speaking at the White House on Tuesday, President Obama said Republicans have a choice: “Do you want to see a bunch of first responders lose their jobs because you want to protect some special interest tax loophole?”

He was surrounded by emergency responders as he spoke.
