Obama: Americans 'Better Off' With Me at Helm

President Barack Obama said Americans are "better off" with him in the Oval Office during a speech at a Democratic fundraiser Monday night.

Americans are "better off now than when I came into office," Obama said at the Potomac, Md., home of Jeffrey Drenzer, a medical training and technology executive.

Tickets for the fundraiser ranged from $10,000 per person to $32,400 per couple, says a report in The Hill.

"The debate now is about what?" Obama asked. "Benghazi? Obamacare? It becomes this endless loop."

Obama also called out Republican members of Congress, saying they have been "captured by ideologues" whose goal is to figure out "how to make people sufficiently skeptical so they can win the next election."

The dinner, which benefited the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, drew high-ranking Democrats, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, DCCC Chairman Steve Israel, Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer.

Also in attendance were most of the remaining Democratic members of Maryland's House delegation: Reps. Elijah Cummings, Chris Van Hollen, Donna Edwards, Dutch Ruppersberger, and John Delaney.

Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton of Washington, D.C., was there as well.
