On February 3rd, President Obama called on Congress to expand and extend the payroll tax cut for 160 million workers. “Don’t slow down the recovery we’re on,” he said. “Don’t muck it up.”
Here’s how the President has fought for a fairer tax code that supports small businesses and helps working families keep what they earn:
President Obama has “promoted the growth of small businesses by signing into law 18 tax cuts, including the recently passed tax cuts for hiring unemployed veterans.”
The President’s 2010 payroll tax cut provided about a $1,000 tax cut for the typical working family making $50,000.
These middle-class tax cuts have provided billions in tax relief to American families.
