Obama slams Romney for '47% are victims' comment

Help

The second US presidential election debate between President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney has ended with Mr Obama stating his belief that ''everybody should have a fair shot.''

He also attacked his opponent for claims made in a secretly recorded video where Mr Romney told Republican donors that the 47% of Americans who pay no income tax saw themselves as 'victims'.

The two men will meet for one final pre-election debate on 22 October in Boca Raton, Florida.
