President Obama's Weekly Address (11/17/12)

President pushes for middle-class tax cuts

In this week's address President Obama continued his campaign to secure middle class tax cuts, urging leaders in Washington to act upon a principle where both sides presumably agree:

"We shouldn't hold the middle class hostage while Congress debates tax cuts for the wealthy. Let's begin our work by actually doing what we all agree on. Let's keep taxes low for the middle class. And let's get it done soon -- so we can give families and businesses some good news going into the holiday season."
