• Extending middle class tax cuts: “We need this”

    Just a few reasons why President Obama is urging Congress to extend middle class tax cuts and save working families an average of $2,200 next year:

    "With $2,200, I could start paying off my student loans that are accumulating for graduate school. I could fix up my car. I could pay for gas right now. There are plenty of things I could do with it—I could really use it."
    —Jacob

    "We're going to have a baby in the next year or two, so we'd put it toward baby savings."
    —Camille and Darian

    "My last semester at University of Cincinnati would be paid off. I would be able to get my textbooks and start graduate school."
    —T. Marie

    "[I could] support my son who's in college, support my husband, my daughter, myself, buy groceries, pay bills—we need this advantage."
    —Charlsetta
