Once again, President Obama is taking on the fight on behalf of millennials and the middle class by fighting to extend tax cuts for millions of Americans who would like to know that their economic security is not tied to politics.
For our generation, knowing that as we begin new careers or start a family that we have the economic security to do so is a fundamental foundation to our ability to achieve the American dream. While Mitt Romney and Congressional Republicans will assuredly stand against economic security for the majority of Americans, we will continue to press Congress to not act in the interest of defeating the President, as Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has said is his number one priority, but instead to offer relief to the millions of young Americans and middle class families who have worked hard and played by the rules.
We urge the House and Senate to pass tax cuts for young Americans, their families, and the middle class as soon as possible, and to get that bill to the President’s desk to be signed into law.
