President Obama Speaks at the National Urban League Convention

Pres. Obama Cares About Middle Class Tax Cuts

 President Obama called on Congress to extend the middle class tax cuts for the 98 percent of Americans making less than $250,000 for another year.

"With the Senate’s vote, the House Republicans are now the only people left in Washington holding hostage the middle-class tax cuts for 98% of Americans and nearly every small business owner.  The last thing a typical middle class family can afford is a $2,200 tax hike at the beginning of next year.  It’s time for House Republicans to drop their demand for another $1 trillion giveaway to the wealthiest Americans and give our families and small businesses the financial security and certainty that they need.  Our economy isn’t built from the top-down, it’s built from a strong and growing middle class, and that’s who we should be fighting for."

B-roll shows the family strolling toward the wedding ceremony held at Jarrett's home, a block away from the Obamas. The president is seen in an oatmeal-hued suit, gold patterned tie. President Obama will leave the city Sunday en route for the G-20 in Mexico.
