President Obama issued a taunt to Republicans during a speech Tuesday, saying “so sue me” for taking executive actions on various political issues without Congress.
“As long as they insist on taking no action whatsoever that will help anybody, I’m going to keep on taking actions on my own that can help the middle class, like the actions I’ve already taken to speed up construction projects and attract new manufacturing jobs and lift workers’ wages and help students pay off their student loans,” Obama said in Washington.
“Middle-class families can’t wait for Republicans in Congress to do stuff. So sue me. As long as they’re doing nothing, I’m not going to apologize for trying to do something.”
Obama added he felt Republicans were “patriots” but they had antiquated views on the economy.
