Rep. Paul Ryan and President Obama have a long history of fundamental policy disagreements, but today Ryan accused Obama of breaking his campaign promise to unite the country rather than divide it through class warfare.
"I think he’s preying on the emotions of fear, envy and anger,” the Wisconsin Republican said today on NBC’s “Meet The Press.” “And that is not constructive to unifying America. I think he’s broken his promise as a uniter, and now he’s dividing people. And to me, that’s very unproductive. That’s not who we are in America."
"I think this divisive rhetoric is fairly — is divisive,” he said. “I think it’s troubling. Sowing class envy and social unrest is not what we do in America."
