Cutter: Obama Has Mandate To ‘Protect Middle Class’
PEMA LEVY 9:41 AM EST, WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 28, 2012
Stephanie Cutter, who served as deputy campaign manager for Obama's re-election effort, said that the president's mandate after winning re-election "is to protect the middle class," during an appearance on MSNBC's "Daily Rundown."
"His mandate is to protect the middle class and help people enter and stay in the middle class," Cutter said. Adding that that means protecting programs like Medicaid.
As President Obama tries to mobilize Americans behind his push to extend the middle class tax cuts, Cutter predicted people would get involved. "The president ran on an agenda," Cutter said. "OFA, Obama for America, those millions who helped get the president elected, they want to get that agenda done. So I think you'll see a pretty mobilized group of people across this country who have a real stake in the outcome of what happens in Washington."

was a lot of poor people that voted for him too. It wasn't just the middleclass. That is why he got the majority. Those groups will make sure he does his job. It was not Wall Street that elected you. And that is why I will personally start getting involved from now on in Politics. I'm tired of seeing Politicians get our votes and then sell out to Wall Street or people with money. It will not be status quo this time.
