Jewish Action in the Front Row

President Obama
November 9, 2012


In a strong opening salvo, today President Obama took his case directly to the American people for ending the Bush-era tax cuts for top earners. Noting that the tax cuts were debated throughout the campaigns, the President framed the issue as one on which there is broad consensus among the electorate and on which the Senate has already acted – pointedly putting the House on the hot seat.

Hadar Susskind, director of Bend the Arc Jewish Action, attended the President’s speech. “I was honored to have a front row seat as the President took the podium, and incredibly excited to watch him draw a line in the sand on the very policy that Bend the Arc Jewish Action has committed to organizing Jewish support around in the weeks and months ahead.”
