Tiffany: What $2,000 Means to My Family

Tiffany, who lives in Northern Virginia with her husband, son and parents, talks about what paying $2,000 more in taxes next year would mean to her family. Tell us your story athttp://www.whitehouse.gov/My2k.






We’ve heard from more than 370,000 people in all 50 states, and many say that paying $2,000 more in taxes would force families to make some tough choices about their household budgets. For some, it might mean deciding whether to buy groceries or fill a prescription. For others, it would be the difference in making rent or paying tuition.


Tiffany, who lives in Northern Virginia with her husband, seven-year old son, and parents, is one of the many people who wrote in. The “picture of the 21st middle class,” her family decided on their multi-generation blended living situation to save money and spend more time together.


But with two sets of working adults – a teacher and an auto industry worker, and a child-care provider and postal worker –Tiffany said that her household would be doubly affected by a tax hike. And as a family of budding entrepreneurs, they would have less money to get their new businesses off the ground.


Today, President Obama will meet Tiffany and her family in their home, to talk more about how why it’s so important for Congress to pass the middle-class tax cuts before the end of the year, both for families like hers and our economy.


Before he arrives, get to know Tiffany and her family, and hear her talk in her own words about what a $2,000 tax hike would mean to them.


A typical middle class family of four would see its taxes rise by $2,200 starting in 2013. Middle-class families can’t afford that. A tax hike of about $2,000 means less money to buy groceries for fill a prescription. It means a tougher choice between paying the rent and paying tuition.
President Obama is calling on Congress to pass a bill that would prevent 98 percent of American families from paying higher taxes next year. But this is our biggest challenge yet — and it’s one that we can only meet together.
More than 300,000 Americans are already speaking out about what $2,000 means to them. Join them by sharing your story above or on Twitter with the hashtag #My2k
