Obama To Sex Assault Victims: 'I've Got Your Back'

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama says sexual assault affects not only individual victims but the entire country.

In his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama says sexual assault is an affront to basic decency and humanity. He's promoting a White House task force he's created to address the problem on college campuses.

Obama is telling victims that they're not alone. He says, quote, "I've got your back."

Obama says government has a role in ending sexual assault. But he says it's up to everyone to teach young people to help put an end to the crime.

In the Republican address, Sen. Roy Blunt of Missouri says Obama's economic policies are hurting poor Americans. He says Obama should join Republicans in growing the economy.
