OBAMA FOR AMERICA

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
July 15, 2012

DAILY CAMPAIGN GUIDANCE FOR
MONDAY, JULY 16, 2012

CHICAGO - On Monday, July 16, President Obama will hold a town hall in Cincinnati to 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 believes our economy grows from the middle out, not from the top down. That's why he's called on Congress to immediately extend the middle-class tax cuts scheduled to expire at the end of this year and prevent a tax increase on the 98 percent of families who earn less than $250,000 a year. That action would prevent a typical middle-class family of four from seeing their taxes go up $2,200.

President Obama has already cut taxes for a typical Ohio family by $3,500 over four years, helping families afford to send their children to college, buy their first home, pay for health care and child care. These tax cuts also helped the economy recover from the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression.

In Ohio, the President's middle-class tax cuts are already having an impact on millions of families.
· The Making Work Pay Tax Credit allowed an estimated 4.5 million working Ohio families to receive a collective $2.2 billion in tax relief in 2010.
· The payroll tax credit provided an estimated 5.7 million Ohio workers $3.6 billion in tax relief in 2011.
· And the American Opportunity Tax Credit provided an estimated 349,000 Ohio students and their families an average of $2,100 tax credit towards their tuition expenses in 2011.

Impact of the Auto Recovery on Ohio
· Because the President stood by auto workers, nearly 155,000 Ohio jobs were saved.
· Since June 2009, Ohio's auto industry has gained over 16,000 industry-related jobs.
· In Ohio, the auto industry helps to support over 848,000 jobs which is one out of eight working Ohioans and over 12% of the state's workforce.
· And in Ohio, the auto industry contributes over $3.9 billion in taxes, 17% of the state's revenue

As part of the town hall, the President will also answer questions from the audience.


2:20 PM EDT THE PRESIDENT delivers remarks at a town hall in Cincinnati, OH
