No additional tax credit per child..check
No tax breaks for small business....check
The list, ping
Are his lips moving? He is lying.
The best “initiative” for the middle class would be to stop hamstringing the free market. Not running around with band-aids and handouts.

“Stand By Your Plan Man (Musical parody 4 Obama, Pelosi, Reid healthcare etc) Apologies Tammy Wynette”
Under massive assault for a long time by Obama/Reid/Pelosi.
I am guessing this is just more Obama Well fare....he doesn’t believe in self reliance....keeps taking away your rights by interfering in private businesses...Government over all! Obama is a lying jerk!
He ties the maximum payment to the loan receipients wages, so an art history major might never have to use a penny of his McDonald's pay for student loans. Sucks to be you if you were chump enough to get a degree in science, engineering or medicine and have to pay for your full student loan plus increased taxes under Obama.
Jobs will help the middle class.
And this aint it.
Dear God, he was on the TV again! Does he never shut up?
These people are clueless about what is “middle class”
Tell me meShell obama doesn’t spend 85K a year on clothes
I remember when she spurned the Bush $600 tax cut as not good enough to buy a pair of earrings
“a program to cap student loan payments for people carrying a big college debt burden”
Yeah. Hate those banks!
Where do these people get their money from after Obama destroys our banking system?
What a putz this guy is.
It seems like he is doubling the child credit. That is sort of a tax cut.
I don’t believe so. It is a “child care” tax credit. I don’t think it is a credit per child, but a credit for the cost of child care.
He’s full of it. All of it.
The article mentioned doubling the child care tax credit. So it is good if you have your child raised in a government approved warehouse while going to work to be able to pay your taxes. Staying at home with the children to raise them in a loving home? Disapproved!

All joking aside, what sort of pathology leads one to conclude that the best solution for temporary middle class woes is to create more government dependents?
