Eva Longoria DNC speech video: Desperate Housewives actress took aim at the policies of Obama rivals

Several Hollywood stars took the the stage at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte this week.

Actresses Scarlett Johansson and Kerry Washington delivered speeches supporting President Obama.

So did "Desperate Housewives" star Eva Longoria, who took aim at the policies of Obama's Republican rival.

"Mitt Romney would raise taxes on middle class families to cut his own and mine, and that's not who we are as a nation and let me tell you why, because the Eva Longoria who worked at Wendy's flipping burgers, she needed a tax break, but the Eva Longoria who works on movie sets does not," Longoria said.

Mitt Romney has said raising taxes on the upper class would hurt job creation.

President Obama has pushed for raising taxes on people making more than 250-thousand-dollars a year.


Earlier this week Longoria sat down with Piers Morgan and discussed her role as an Obama surrogate. "I've been speaking to two big communities important to the president -- the women's community and the Latino community -- and so I will be speaking about those issues, a little narrative about my American Dream and how I'm living proof of that."

Longoria hosted a party Wednesday night with a performance by Flo Rida.
