President Obama said Wednesday night the Republican presidential candidates change every four years but their callous platform stays the same.

“You could take the speech of any one of the current Republican candidates and put it side-by-side with what Mitt Romney was arguing in 2012, and what John McCain was arguing in 2008, and what George Bush was arguing in 2000 and 2004, and it’d be the same prescription,” Mr. Obama told supporters at a Democratic fundraiser in Potomac, Md. “The platform’s almost identical.”

The president said the Republican candidates for president in 2016 are “offering the same thing — tax cuts for folks at the very top who don’t need tax cuts, cuts in critical investments like education, and research and development and infrastructure to help us grow, cuts to Medicare and Medicaid and programs that mark us as an advanced society because we care for the vulnerable.”

The fundraiser was attended by about 350 people who paid up to $33,400 each. It was hosted at the home of David and June Trone; Mr. Trone is a co-founder of Total Wine & More.
