Obama Touting Payroll Tax Cut Extension Deal

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama will be joined at the White House on Tuesday by taxpayers who stand to benefit from a payroll tax cut extension. Obama will discuss the importance of Congress’ agreement to extend the Social Security payroll tax cut and unemployment insurance. He will also urge Congress to take additional steps to create jobs, grow the economy and help the middle class. Joining Obama will be Americans who have shared their stories on WhiteHouse.gov and Twitter about what an extra $40 in their paycheck means to them. In the evening, the president and first lady will welcome well-known musicians, including B.B. King, Mick Jagger and Buddy Guy, to the White House for a celebration of blues music in recognition of Black History Month.
