Accomplishment No. 3: The Payroll Tax Cut
In 2011, President Obama fought for a payroll tax cut for all working Americans that put extra money every month into the typical Nevadan's pocket. Then, both he and everyday Americans fought against Republican opposition to extend the tax cut through 2012 by reminding Congress what $40 a paycheck would mean to main street America. Because of Pres. Obama's leadership and grassroots organizing, on February 14th of this year, the payroll tax cut was extended.
In contrast Mitt Romney called President Obama’s payroll tax cut extension—worth roughly $1,500 to a typical middle class family over the course of a year—a “temporary little band-aid.”
What's a "band-aid" to Mitt Romney is real money to those in our community. See how the payroll tax cut helped typical American families and how using the hashtag #40Dollars helped change the debate.
Stand with the President by signing up to volunteer so we can all win this November.
