Saturday Speeches: Domestic Agenda, Budget [VIDEO]

President Barack Obama is turning from foreign policy to the home front, saying money saved from ending wars should be used equally to pay down the debt and to spend on health care, education and infrastructure.

In his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama declared that his goal of defeating al-Qaida is within reach and it’s time to focus on domestic concerns like strengthening the middle class.

Without mentioning Republicans, he cast the GOP view as one that promotes more tax cuts for millionaires while cutting spending “that built a strong middle class.”

For the Republicans, Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker accused the administration and the Senate’s Democratic leadership of fiscal mismanagement, saying they have put off difficult decisions that would tame government spending.

He says Obama’s response to tough decisions is to “punt.”
