Remarks by the President at DNC Reception, 4/15/10


And since today happens to be Tax Day -- (laughter) -- I should just point out that one third of the Recovery Act went to tax cuts -- tax cuts that strengthened the cornerstone of the American Dream: working for a living, earning an education, owning a home, raising a family. We cut taxes for 95 percent of working Americans, just like I promised we would on the campaign. (Applause.) That made a difference for 7 million families in Florida alone. We cut taxes on small businesses. We cut taxes for students and parents paying for college. We cut taxes for first-time homebuyers, more than 128,000 here in Florida. In all, we passed 25 different tax cuts last year. And one thing we havent done is raise income taxes on families making less than $250,000 a year -- another promise that we kept. (Applause.)

So Ive been a little amused over the last couple of days where people have been having these rallies about taxes. (Laughter.) You would think they would be saying thank you. (Laughter.) Thats what youd think. (Applause.)

Transcript of full speech:
