It’s Barack’s House!
The next 53 days are crucial. That’s how much time Washington has to come together to stop taxes from going up for 114 million middle class families. That’s how much time we have to figure out the right way to begin to get our deficits under control.
There are 53 days left to find a solution that stops taxes from going up on 140 million American families and helps us reduce our nation’s deficits in a smart and responsible way.
“I’m committed to solving our fiscal challenges,” he said. “But I refuse to accept any approach that isn’t balanced. I am not going to ask students and seniors and middle-class families to pay down the entire deficit while people like me, making over $250,000, aren’t asked to pay a dime more in taxes. I’m not going to do that.”
In the days and weeks ahead, the President plans to reach out to members of Congress, labor and business leaders, and citizens from all walks of life to gather ideas and input.
In fact, next week, he’s invited leaders from both parties to come to the White House to begin discussing solutions. But he intends for those conversations to unfold with a minimal amount of drama.
“What the American people are looking for is cooperation,” he said. “They’re looking for consensus. They’re looking for common sense. Most of all, they want action. I intend to deliver for them in my second term, and I expect to find willing partners in both parties to make that happen.”
