Office Hours 12/21/11 or "#40dollars" With Brian Deese
07:05 PM EDT
On Tuesday, the White House called on Americans to add their voice to the conversation in Washington about why we need to extend the payroll tax cut. If Congress fails to extend the payroll tax cut, the typical family making $50,000 a year will have about $40 less to spend or save with each paycheck. Over the year, that adds up to about $1,000.
Today, Brian Deese, Deputy Director of the National Economic Council, answered your questions about the payroll tax cut extension and why $40 matters during a session of White House Office Hours.
