In response to today’s tax announcement from President Obama, Van Jones, the president and co-founder of Rebuild the Dream, is calling on Obama to promise a veto of any taxpayer-funded handouts to the wealthy. Read his statement below.
"I support President Obama's tax cut proposal to help middle income and and poor folks without continuing tax bailouts for the nation's wealthy. That said, with all of Washington embracing a false 'we're broke' mentality and pushing cuts that just make things worse for many American families on the edge, the President must go further and promise to protect Social Security and Medicare and veto any handouts for people making more than $250,000."
