Weekly Address: Urging Congress to Extend the Middle Class Tax Cuts

&feature=player_embedded


President Obama speaks to the American people from a busy factory floor in Pennsylvania about the urgent need to pass the middle class tax cuts, which will give families and businesses preparing for the holidays the certainty they need going into the New Year. Democrats and Republicans must come together to pass one thing that everyone agrees on—extending income tax cuts for 98 percent of American families and 97 percent of small businesses, and there is no reason to wait. The President urges Congress to take action to help grow our economy and strengthen the middle class.

1. He explains the tax cut very well.

He does mention that raising taxes on the wealthiest to help the US pay for things it needs like education and research. Those are absolutely necessary for the current and future health of this country, but I wonder if he mentioned infrastructure and energy, those things would in my mind translate to JOBS now.
