President On Payroll Holiday: ‘$40 Can Make All The Difference In The World’

 

PRESIDENT OBAMA: “We asked folks to tell what it was like — what it would be like if they lost $40 out of every one of their paychecks — because we wanted to make sure that people understood this is not just an abstract argument, this is concrete.  This makes a difference in the lives of folks all across the country in very important ways…  It would be $40 less for groceries to feed your kids; it would be $40 less for the medications you depend on; $40 less to cover bills and the rent; $40 less to take care of an elder parent, or to donate to a church or a charity.” (President Obama, Remarks, 2/14/12)

 

·         OBAMA: “And that’s what this debate is all about.  This is what’s at stake for millions of Americans.  This is why it matters to people — it matters a heck of a lot.  And I’m asking the American people to keep their stories coming.  Tell us what $40 means to you.” (President Obama, Remarks, 2/14/12)

 

·         OBAMA: “… $40 can make all the difference in the world.” (President Obama, Weekly Address, 2/11/12)
