PRESIDENT OBAMA TO TAKE TWO-DAY TOUR ACROSS FLORIDA TO DISCUSS HIS VISION OF HOW TO GROW THE ECONOMY, CREATE MIDDLE-CLASS JOBS AND PAY DOWN THE DEBT
On Thursday, July 19, the President will travel to Jacksonville and West Palm Beach, Florida
CHICAGO- On Thursday, July 19, President Obama will kick off a two-day tour across Florida, where he will discuss the choice in this election between two fundamentally different visions of how to grow the economy, create middle-class jobs and pay down the debt. The President believes the only way to build an economy meant to last is to build it from the middle out, not the top down. He will discuss his plan to restore middle-class security by paying down our debt in a balanced way that ensures everyone pays their fair share and still invests in the things we need to create jobs and grow our economy over the long term, like education, energy, innovation, and infrastructure.
The President will also repeat his call on Congress to act now to give middle-class families some certainty by preventing a scheduled tax increase on 98 percent of Americans, including families across Florida. President Obama has already cut taxes for a typical Florida family by $3,400 over four years helping families afford to send their children to college, buy their first home, pay for health care and child care.
President Obama will also hold campaign events in Fort Myers and Orlando, Florida on Friday, July 20. Details on additional stops will be announced in the following days.
