Obama’s Jobs Plan, to Raise $400 Billion in Taxes

Written on September 13, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

Through tax increases and subsidy deductions, Barrack Obama's jobs plan is believed to raise more than $400 million.

White House Office of Management and Budget Director, Jack Lew, outlines President Barrack Obama’s plan to pay for his $447 billion jobs plan — mostly through tax increase. The budget director said that itemized tax deductions and exemptions for those making $200,000 or more, and families earning greater than $250,000, would be cut. That would raise about $400 billion to pay President Obama’s jobs plan for over ten years.

Moreover, a change to bring more hedge fund earnings under normal tax rules – as opposed to carried interest rates – would raise another $18 billion. However, Jack Lew said that the new tax rule would not take effect until January 2013.

White House Twitter Responds to Bored User with Rick-rolling Tweet

In the midst of answering questions from curious individuals, the White House Twitter account got the chance to respond to a bored Twitter user through a "Rickroll-flavored" tweet.

Recently, the White House launched the “Office Hours”, a Twitter program that is created to inform US citizens regarding the details of the debt ceiling and deficit reduction negotiations. Two members of National Economic Council, Brian Deese and Jason Furman, will be in charged of answering all the queries from US Twitter users through the White House Twitter account for the whole week.

Last Wednesday, President Obama’s economic adviser – Brian Deese – spent his time to respond to a bored user named David Wiggs, who tweeted: “This WH correspondence briefing isn’t nearly as entertaining as yesterday’s.”

As a part of his job for the program, Brian Deese answered back, stating: “@wiggsd Sorry to hear that. Fiscal policy is important, but can be dry sometimes. Here’s something more fun: tinyurl.com/y8ufsnp

Twitter programs like this one is not actually new to the White House. In fact, President Barack Obama hosted a Twitter Town Hall lately, in which he gladly answers all the citizen’s queries regarding the country’s economy and employment standing.

Top Republicans Support Tax Subsidies Cut and Debt Ceiling Raise

Written on July 05, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

The Republicans are clearly against the tax increase, that's why they support the 'revenue raisers'.

Last Sunday, top Senate Republicans stated that they support the cut on tax subsidies in relation to a deal to lower deficit and raise the debt ceiling. Sen. John McCain and Sen. John Cornyn indicated that they are for ‘revenue raisers’ in order to avert government default, and not the tax increases. Sen. John Cornyn even said in Fox News Sunday:

“I think it’s clear that the Republicans are opposed to any tax hikes, particularly during a fragile economic recovery. Now, do we believe tax reform is necessary? I would say absolutely.”

The Republican senators’ statements end the week-and-a-half-long negotiations on debt ceiling, and welcome the deal to include cuts to corporate subsidies ordered by the Barrack Obama administration. The government instructed that a deal must be reached by July 22, so that it can be implemented by August 22.

Comments Off

The US President will write tweets himself and will include his signature, ‘BO’.

Social media were a big hit during the 2008 campaign and candidate’s staff used these tools to let the people know who to vote. But when the election was over, politicians used social media themselves in order to communicate their ideas to the people.

In the recent Obama for America, U.S. President Barack Obama mentioned that he’ll personally manage his Twitter and Facebook accounts. He’ll write updates himself which will come with the signature, -BO.

Have a good laugh as President Obama was interrupted when the presidential seal came crashing off the podium during an event.

Barack Obama sets an exemption when he was invited by Tine Inc. CEO Ann Moore to speak at Fortune Magazine’s Most Powerful Women Summits. The CEO said that the president ‘earned this podium’ but she didn’t mean it in a literal sense because minutes later the presidential seal on the podium came crashing down.

But Obama, the press and the audience just laughed about the incident. The president stopped midway through his speech, saw the seal gone and candidly said,”That’s OK, I think everyone here knows who I am.”

See the hilarious video after the skip.
