Obama says GOP’s tax math doesn’t work

WASHINGTON — President Obama said Saturday that Republicans in the House are blocking a bill that would prevent a tax increase on the first $250,000 of income earned by all Americans.

The Democratic-controlled Senate has approved the measure, but Obama said House Republicans have ‘‘put forward an unbalanced plan that actually lowers rates for the wealthiest Americans.’’ Obama supports a plan to raise taxes on families earning more than $250,000.
