WASHINGTON -- White House senior adviser David Plouffe drew a stark contrast between Democrats' and Republicans' visions for the country, asserting that the GOP simply wants "huge tax cuts for the wealthy, more war, more debt."
Appearing on ABC's "This Week," Plouffe addressed the Republican criticisms of President Barack Obama's new policy on immigration, which halts deportations for some young undocumented immigrants. Plouffe acknowledged it was not a long-term fix and said the administration would like Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform, but unfortunately did not believe that it would do so.
"There was a remarkable story this week where members of Congress in the Republican caucus were openly talking about doing nothing on the economy over the next five months because it would help Mitt Romney," Plouffe said. "And so whether it's failing to move forward on the DREAM Act, failing to move forward on putting teachers back to work, failing to do all the things we could do right now to help the economy and middle class, this Congress is just saying no."
