Weekly Wrap Up: #My2k, Tweet it!
Watch the West Wing Week here. Here’s a quick glimpse at what happened this week on WhiteHouse.gov: #My2k: This week,  President Obama called on the American people to speak out in favor of keeping taxes low on the middle class . He explained: If Congress does nothing, every family in America will see their taxes automatically go up at the beginning of next year. A typical middle-class family of four would see its income taxes go up by $2,200. That's $2,200 out of people's pockets. That means less money for buying groceries, less money for filling prescriptions, less money for buying diapers. It means a tougher choice between paying the rent and paying tuition. And middle-class families just can’t afford that right now. The President asked the American people to speak loudly by sharing what $2,000 means to them online on Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #My2k.
