“In this country, prosperity does not trickle down,” Obama said. “Prosperity grows from the bottom up and it grows from a strong middle class out…and that’s why I’m always confused when we keep having the same argument with folks who don’t seem to remember how America was built.
“They keep telling us if we’d just weaken regulations…cut everybody’s taxes and convert these investments in community colleges and research and to healthcare into tax cuts, especially for the wealthy, that somehow the economy is going to get stronger and Ohio and the rest of the country will prosper,” the president said.
“That’s the theory,” he said. “Ohio, we tested this theory. Take a look what happened between 2000 and 2008….Their theory did not work out so well.”
