OBAMA FOR AMERICA

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

August 13, 2012

DAILY GUIDANCE FOR TUESDAY, AUGUST 14, 2012

CHICAGO-- On Tuesday, August 14, President Obama will continue his three-day bus tour through Iowa with grassroots events in Oskaloosa, Marshalltown and Waterloo. The President will discuss the choice in this election between two fundamentally different visions of how to create an economy built to last and restore middle-class economic security.

President Obama has a vision for an economy built from the middle out, not the top down. During his first term, President Obama has already cut taxes for a typical Iowa family by about $3,600. This has helped Iowa 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 proposals is a $5 trillion tax plan that independent economists have confirmed would raise taxes on middle class families with children by an average of more than $2,000 in order to pay for tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires.

In Iowa, 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 1.1 million working Iowa families to receive a collective $600 million in tax relief in 2010.
The payroll tax credit provided an estimated 1.7 million Iowa families $1.1 billion in tax relief last year.
And the American Opportunity Tax Credit provided an estimated 78,000 Iowa students and their families an average of $2,000 in tax credit relief towards their tuition expenses in 2011
