Gotta go. Thx. Keep pressure on Congress. Call, email, tweet your Member & tell them what 2k means to you. Lets get it done. #my2k -boThe White House
.@Mica4Life da bears still gotta shot, despite sad loss this weekend! plus rose will return for playoffs!!! -boThe White House
Who will win it all first: Chicago #WhiteSox, #Bulls, or #Bears? #NFL #NBA #MLB cc: #My2k @BarackObama @whitehouseMica
.@jjfein don't expect 100% my budget; room to negotiate. if you incl $1T+ in cuts already made, rough balance b/w rev & cuts does trick -boThe White House
@whitehouse Is there a minimum ratio of revenue increases to spending cuts that you're looking for, or simply a balanced approach? #my2kJason Feinman
.@soitgoesem breaks for middle class impt for families & econ. if top rates don't go up, danger that middle class deductions get hit - boThe White House
As a home owner, I worry deductions for home owners are at risk. Is that the case? #My2kEmma Robertson
.@davidosteen (part 2) Open to more smart cuts but not in areas like R&D, edu that help growth & jobs, or hurt vulnerable (eg disabled) - boThe White House
.@davidosteen (part 1) already cut $1T+ in gov spending last yr. Discretionary spending lowest as % of GDP since ike. #my2kThe White House
@BarackObama Mr. President, Why not place more emphasis on reducing government spending, than on raising revenues? #My2K #WHChatDavid Osteen
.@huntertred not enough revenue, unless you end charitable deductions, etc. less revenue=more cuts in education etc -boThe White House
@whitehouse what is your opposition to taking away deductions for the 2% rather than up the rate? Seems like a reasonable compromise #My2KHunter Tredway
.@dontbeaprat cuts w/out revenue = reductions in student loans; work/study & college tax credits expire. Bad for growth. like your hair! -boThe White House
.@dontbeaprat cuts w/out revenue=reductions in student loans; work/study & college tax credits expire. Bad for growth. like your hair! -boThe White House
@BarackObama #My2k As a recent college grad w/o a full time job, these cuts wouldn't help me, would they?Mandi
.@mike5673 high end tax cuts do least for economic growth & cost almost $1T. extending middle class cuts boosts consumer demand & growth -boThe White House
Mr. President, why won't keeping tax rates low across the board encourage more hires and therefore more tax revenue? #my2kMike Vanderwyst
.@pmmckenzie we can reduce deficit in balanced way by ending tax cuts for top 2% + reforms that strengthen safety net & invest in future -boThe White House
Mr. President, can you assure us that any "fiscal cliff" negotiations regarding entitlement reform will not hurt the most needy? #My2KPhillip M. McKenzie
hey guys - this is barack. ready to answer your questions on fiscal cliff & #my2k. Let's get started. -boThe White House
