President Obama Speaks on Extending Tax Cuts for Middle Class Families

President Obama makes the case for extending tax cuts for middle-class families by visiting a business that depends on middle-class consumers during the holiday season, and could be impacted if taxes go up on 98 percent of Americans at the end of the year. November 30, 2012.

Mayra – We All Agree, Pass The Middle Class Tax Cuts

“I’ve got a mandate to help middle-class families and families that are working hard to try to get into the middle class. That’s my mandate. That’s what the American people said. They said: Work really hard to help us.”
– President Obama, November 14th 2012

Right now, working really hard to help the middle class means keeping taxes low for 98% of American families who are otherwise staring down a $2,000 tax increase on January 1 — if Congress doesn’t act.
