I was out doing an interview then wound up with a flat tire so I'm a bit late catching up. The email was also down on my phone so something in the cosmos is amiss today. Here's a quick review of developments today in Pennsylvania.
Barack Obama did two events, Lancaster and Allentown and also made stops in Manheim at an E85 alternative fuel station and at Marvin Ranch restaurant in downtown Reading. Hillary had an economic roundtable in Harrisburg and sent out a proposal for tax cuts where she says:
"A typical family making $50,000 would receive a matching tax cut of up to $1,000 to help save and build wealth, a $3,500 tax credit to help pay for college costs, and a generous tax cut to make health care affordable. In addition, a family caring for an elderly parent or disabled child would receive a $3,000 tax credit to help cover the costs of caregiving. Hillary would also expand the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) to help larger families, giving at least 3 million families with $1,000 in additional income and would triple the size of the EITC benefit for single workers, providing more than four million people a tax cut averaging $750.
The impact of these tax cuts would be enormous for millions of Pennsylvania families. For example, 3.4 million Pennsylvania households would be eligible to receive with new matching tax cuts to help save for retirement, and Hillary’s new $3000 Caregivers Tax Credit would benefit at least 200,000 Pennsylvania seniors, people with disabilities and their families."
Michelle Obama will be in Pittsburgh Wednesday at Skibo Gymnasium of CMU. That's at Tech and Frew Streets and the event begins at 2:15 pm.
