Office Hours 8/2/11 or "The American People Won In This #Compromise": Jason Furman Answers Your Questions on Twitter
07:24 PM EDT
After President Obama spoke about a compromise to reduce the deficit and avert default, Jason Furman, Principal Deputy Director of the National Economic Council, was available on Twitter for Office Hours to answer questions on what the deal means for Americans and its impact on the economy. Tweeps around the country submitted questions with the hashtag #WHChat and Jason responded from the White House Twitter account, sometimes with a Twoosh (a Tweet with exactly 140 characters. A Tweet-swoosh, if you will). See the full Q&A below, or on Storify.
If you missed today's Office Hours, Brian Deese, Deputy Director of the National Economic Council, will be @WhiteHouse tomorrow at 4:00 p.m. EDT to answer more questions. Use #WHChat to ask a question and share your feedback on Office Hours and the online program with #WHWeb.
