In the afternoon, the President will visit the home of a middle class family in Northern Virginia to discuss the importance of extending income tax cuts for 98% of Americans and 97% of small businesses. In response to the #My2K social media campaign, a member of this family shared her story about how paying $2,200 more in taxes next year, if Congress doesn’t act, would impact them. This family’s story is just one of over 100,000 we’ve received on Whitehouse.gov. More than 260,000 people have also spoken out on this issue using the hashtag #My2K. There will be in-town travel pool coverage of the President’s visit.
