President visits Virginia and talks about tax cuts

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. -- With under four months to the presidential election, President Obama is trying to keep Virginia in his column.

The president hop-scotched his way around Virginia on Friday. The state went for Obama in 2008. The first time since 1964.

In Virginia Beach, the president blasted republicans for trying to repeal his health care law and not focusing on extending Bush-era tax cuts.

"Thirty-three votes to repeal the health care bill. All it would take is one vote to make sure that all of you don't see your taxes go up next year," the president said.
