Deploying the rhetoric of class warfare against congressional Republicans, President Obama warned Wednesday that â€œsocial tensions will riseâ€ if Washington doesnâ€™t take steps to reverse the growing gap between wealthy Americans and the middle class.
In a campaign-style speech at Knox College in Galesburg, Ill., the president proclaimed that America during his presidency has â€œfought its way backâ€ from the recession and called on voters to â€œpressure CongressÂ to invest in our futureâ€ on priorities such as education, clean energy and infrastructure.
He predicted that if the GOPÂ resists his plans, the nationâ€™s social fabric will begin to fray as resentment builds among lower economic groups.
â€œThe position of the middle class will erode further,â€ Mr. Obama said. â€œInequality will continue to increase, moneyâ€™s power will distort our politics even more. Social tensions will rise, as various groups fight to hold on to what they have, start blaming somebody else for why their position isnâ€™t improving. Thatâ€™s not the America we know.â€
