Obama speaks at the NAACP's annual convention in PhiladelphiaBy Roberta Rampton PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) – President Barack Obama said on Tuesday he wanted to work with a bipartisan group of lawmakers on new prison sentencing reform legislation by the end of the year to reduce sentences for low-level drug dealers and parole violations. “Mass incarceration makes our country worse off, and we need to do something about it,” Obama told about 3,000 people attending a convention of the NAACP, the nation’s oldest civil rights group. The speech came on the same day as a major international deal aimed at preventing Iran from building a nuclear weapon, a diplomatic feat that will be part of Obama’s legacy.
