With lawmakers and the White House yet to work out a deal to avert the looming fiscal crisis, President Obama will hit the campaign trail today, traveling to what the White House says is the home of a middle class family in Northern Virginia.
There he'll "discuss the importance of extending income taxes for 98 percent of Americans and 97 percent of small businesses," the White House says.
A member of the Virginia family shared a response to the White House's #My2K social media campaign, explaining how a hike in taxes -- estimated at $2,200 -- would effect the family if the Bush-era cuts aren't extended. The White House says the family’s story is just one of over 100,000 its received at Whitehouse.gov. Another 260,000 have tweeted about it.
