Obama: 'Let's get it done soon'

By JENNIFER EPSTEIN | 11/17/12 7:03 AM EST
President Barack Obama repeated his call Saturday for Congress to extend the Bush-era middle-class tax cut without delay, as he and congressional leaders work on a larger agreement to avert a looming fiscal crisis.

“We shouldn’t hold the middle class hostage while Congress debates tax cuts for the wealthy,” Obama said in his weekly address, echoing comments he made Wednesday at his first press conference since Election Day.

“Let’s begin our work by actually doing what we all agree on. Let’s keep taxes low for the middle class. And let’s get it done soon — so we can give families and businesses some good news going into the holiday season,” he said.

At the meeting, “everyone agreed that while we may have our differences, we need to come together, find solutions and take action as soon as possible,” Obama said.

3. Senator

 

Ayotte is disingenious with her proposal just as much as her Benghazi goose chase. What she really wants to do is continue taxcuts for those that need it the least. Instead of her talking about cutting loopholes, which also goes to the middleclass and Poor, she needs to talk about the loopholes the wealthy receives. She is not defending anybody in the middleclass or poor but defending the wealthy. That is where the unfairness lies when People like Mitt Romney can escape paying taxes.

She wants to target entitlements that go to the poor and middleclass. This includes programs to combat poverty and goes towards investing in our infrastructure and education. So this woman needs to come out from her cloak of deception. To her and her cronies of deception, you have had the Bush taxcuts for ten years now, including the taxcuts implemented by the Obama Administration. Where are these jobs from those cuts?

I'll tell you where they are. They are offshore and the money in offshore bank accounts. These companies have done nothing but downsized to create more profits for shareholders. They could care less about creating jobs for the poor or middleclass as long as they protect their profits.
