The president is in the White House all day but that doesn't mean he won't he talking about one of his favorite campaign issues..taxes. According to a White House release, President Obama will be joined in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building by middle class families who will be "affected if Republicans in Congress continue to hold their tax cuts hostage by insisting on massive tax cuts for the very wealthiest individuals." The President will once again call on Congress extend the "Bush-era" tax cuts for 98 percent of Americans and not to extend the tax cuts for the other 2 percent who make over $250,000 dollars a year.
