Obama Discusses Middle Class Tax Plan

From The Obama Campaign:

Senator Barack Obama continued his dialogue with New Hampshire voters this morning, sitting down with Granite Staters who would benefit from his middle class tax fairness policy. The event at the Black Orchid Grille in Nashua was the first of several stops over the next three days at which Obama will be taking questions and offering straight-forward, honest answers on the issues that matter most to voters.

"It used to be that if you worked hard enough, you could always make ends meet," said roundtable participant John Tourgee of Sharon. "These days, it seems like you can't even find the string. Obama understands what everyday Americans are going through. As President, I know he'll fight for the middle class and bring about the change we need."

Obama's plan will make a real difference for New Hampshire residents:

-The "Making Work Pay" tax credit will create a tax cut for 800,000 New Hampshire residents.
-The universal mortgage credit will help more than 40,000 homeowners in the state, most of whom earn less than $50,000 per year.
-Obama's proposal to eliminate income taxes for senior citizens making less than $50,000 per year will provide direct relief for more than 30,000 seniors in the state.
