NEW YORK » With budget talks set to resume next week, President Barack Obama is urging Congress to hammer out a spending deal that puts more money into education.

At a high school in Brooklyn, Obama said he's tired of hearing the "same old stuff" from GOP critics obsessed with cutting spending.

He said House Republicans forced a government shutdown that cost the economy billions of dollars, but they don't seem to think America can afford quality education.

Obama's appearance at Pathways in Technology high school came ahead of a pair of New York fundraisers -- the kickoff for a six-week blitz that aims to raise cash for Democrats competing in next year's midterm elections.
