“This is not about a few people doing well, we want people to do well, that’s great,” Obama said. “But it is about giving everybody the chance to do well. That’s the essence of America. That’s what the American dream is about… In this country, prosperity has never trickled down from the wealthy few. Prosperity has always come from the bottom up, from a strong and growing middle-class.”
