Parties jockey on State of the Union point-scoring
Obama adviser, House Budget chairman, offer conflicting views on proposals for middle class
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' A top adviser to President Barack Obama says the White House is "happy to have a debate" about Obama's performance in office, while a leading House Republican says the president can't win on his record.

The contrasting views of senior White House adviser David Plouffe (pluhf) and Republican House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan serve as a warm up for Obama's State of the Union address.

Plouffe says the administration considers this "a make-or-break" moment for the middle class. The Republican congressman from Wisconsin, says "it sounds like we're going to hear more of the same," predicting that Obama will "resort to divisiveness."



Plouffe says the wealthy should pay a greater portion of America's tax burden, arguing that many Republicans "are gravitating toward" that concept.
