PRESIDENT OBAMA TO LAY OUT VISION TO RESTORE MIDDLE-CLASS ECONOMIC SECURITY IN NEVADA
On Tuesday, August 21, President Obama will continue his two-day tour of Ohio and Nevada with a grassroots event in Reno, NV and a grassroots event in Las Vegas, NV on Wednesday, August 22. The President 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.
President Obama has a vision for an economy built from the middle out, not the top down. During his first term, the President has already cut taxes for a typical Nevada family by $3,700 over four years. This has helped families afford to send their children to college, buy their first home, pay for health care and child care. The centerpiece of the Romney-Ryan economic plan is a proposal to provide $5 trillion in additional tax breaks weighted toward the wealthy. Independent estimates find that the Romney-Ryan plan would cut taxes for multi-millionaires by $250,000, even as it raises taxes on middle class families with kids by an average of $2,000.
