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 Staff Revealed Tweets Influenced Debt Ceiling Deal

Written on August 01, 2011 by Lulu

Comments Off

A conversation on Twitter revealed that President Obama used Twitter to get the Senators and Congressmen to come to an agreement for the debt ceiling.

A White House aide stated during a Twitter conversation on Sunday night that the micro-blogging site influenced the upcoming result of the agreement on the U.S. debt ceiling. The said conversation is between Brian Stelter, a reporter from The New York Times, and Dan Pfeiffer, the White House communications director.

The House and Senate are expected to vote on the debt ceiling bill on today.

President Obama asked people to tweet their congressmen Friday to persuade them to come to an agreement on setting the debt ceiling with the hashtag #compromise. Then his staff spent a day tweeting out names of Republican legislator from every state of US. Due to the said move, the @BarackObama account lost 36,000 followers. However this new information might indicate it may have been worth it.

Following the said conversation, members of the Congress also took the opportunity to fire back to the president using Twitter.

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.”
