Obama Calls Washington, Wall Street “Irresponsible”


The presumptive Democratic nominee says the country’s “economic emergency” is worsening while meeting with top economic leaders in Washington, D.C.

“There were some irresponsible decisions that were made on Wall Street and in Washington.”

He gathered with major business and economic leaders — including former Treasury Secretaries Rubin and O’Neill and Google CEO Eric Schmidt — to discuss economic policy.

On afternoon media call, former Sen. Bradley says the meeting demonstrates that Obama is “putting the economy No. 1 on his agenda.”
