UAW slams Obama budget plan


Members of the United Auto Workers (UAW), former allies in the administration’s bailout of the auto industry giant General Motors and Chrysler, is claiming the president’s proposed budget is an “attack on the middle class.” The president also took a shot from Newark’s mayor.
