Obama's "Weekly Address"
February 21st, on Barack Obama's page titled "The Weekly Address: The Broadest Tax Cut Ever, Starting Today", Christopher Hass reports that Obama announced that employers will start to reduce taxes for 95% of working families. In this blog, there is a YouTube video of Obama talking about his plan. The style of this video is directly reminiscent of FDR's fireside chats where Obama talks directly into the camera. This is the first time that a president has talked to directly to the people over the internet through video. We've really come a long way!
