Despite some strong headwinds this year, Americarsquo;s economy has now created private sector jobs for the past 21 months in a row ndash; almost three million new jobs in all, more than half a million of them in the past four months alone.wo,h%9YMGw#We need to keep this growth going and strengthen it. Thatrsquo;s why wersquo;ve been fighting to pass a series of jobs bills through Congress ndash; bills that independent economists say will create more jobs and grow the economy even faster. Because now is the time to step on the gas, not slam on the brakes.[*wz)Ou9YyRt,#aOLxnUnfortunately, too many Republicans in Congress donrsquo;t seem to share that same sense of urgency. Over the last few months, theyrsquo;ve said ;no; to most of these jobs bills. ;No; to putting teachers and firefighters back to work. ;No; to putting construction workers back on the job. And this week, they actually said ;no; to cutting taxes for middle-class families.d(ze|_Q%9BDFJmwYou see, last year, both parties came together to cut payroll taxes for the typical middle-class family by about ,000. But that tax cut is set to expire at the end of this month. If that happens, that same family will see its taxes go up by ,000. We canrsquo;t let that happen. In fact, I think we should cut taxes on working families and small business owners even more.!#,HJ..cjLAnd wersquo;re going to keep pushing Congress to make this happen. They shouldnrsquo;t go home for the holidays until they get this done. And if you agree with me, I could use your help.ZQSRw+3vOR06oWersquo;ve set up a simple tax cut calculator on WhiteHouse.gov so that you can see exactly what the stakes are for your family. Try it out. Then let your members of Congress know where you stand.5de@PQ#UMU@GpBHTell them not to vote to raise taxes on working Americans during the holidays. Tell them to put country before party. Put money back in the pockets of working Americans. Pass these tax cuts..)[7LXfcM~Wersquo;re all in this together. The more Americans succeed, the more America succeeds. And if we remember that and do what it takes to keep this economy growing and opportunity rising, then Irsquo;m confident that wersquo;ll come out of this stronger than before.Q%69(uN),.headwind n. 顶头风, 逆风urgency n. 紧急payroll taxes 工资税B#vE-Vn-kV)oG_JPzBeZ|Qu.j[.rwg%Ouy;(alsnma163189

But we do the Presidents cause no good if we praise the American family but ignore a virus that destroys it.We must be consistent if we are to be believed. We cannot love justice and ignore prejudice, love our children and fear to teach them. Whatever our role as parent or policymaker, we must act as eloquently as we speak -- else we have no integrity. My call to the nation is a plea for awareness. If you believe you are safe, you are in danger. Because I was not hemophiliac, I was not at risk. Because I was not gay, I was not at risk. Because I did not inject drugs, I was not at risk.My father has devoted much of his lifetime guarding against another holocaust. He is part of the generation who heard Pastor Nemoellor come out of the Nazi death camps to say,;They came after the Jews, and I was not a Jew, so, I did not protest. They came after the trade unionists, and I was not a trade unionist, so, I did not protest. Then they came after the Roman Catholics, and I was not a Roman Catholic, so, I did not protest. Then they came after me, and there was no one left to protest.;ezXzRjt)*Bhh|pG(HEMzVKeElV_1hyRYYHYk6Nlr#CV%H#DpPn#pQEZ.gv9JQ@H166512

My administration continues to work with the Congress on a rescue plan. And we need a rescue plan. This is -- it's hard work. Our proposal is a big proposal. And the reason it's big and substantial is because we got a big problem.We also need to move quickly. Now, anytime you have a plan this big, that is moving this quickly, that requires legislative approval, it creates challenges. Members want to be heard. They want to be able to express their opinions, and they should be allowed to express their opinions.There are disagreements over aspects of the rescue plan, but there is no disagreement that something substantial must be done. The legislative process is sometimes not very pretty, but we are going to get a package passed. We will rise to the occasion. Republicans and Democrats will come together and pass a substantial rescue plan.Thank you very much.200809/50681

The final day of President Obama's bus tour across America's heartland was jam packed with meetings and spontaneous stops to enjoy the local landscape.

NATIONAL EQUAL PAY DAY, - - - - - - -BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICAA PROCLAMATIONHarriet Beecher Stowe helped galvanize the abolitionist movement with her groundbreaking literature. Frances Perkins advised President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and led the Department of Labor during one of its most challenging periods in history. Barbara McClintock helped unlock the mysteries of genetics and earned a Nobel Prize. These and countless other women have broken barriers and changed the course of our history, allowing women and men who followed them the opportunity to reach greater heights.Despite these achievements, 46 years since the passage of the Equal Pay Act and 233 years since our Nation was established with the principle of equal justice under law, women across America continue to experience discrimination in the form of pay inequity every day. Women in the ed States earn only 78 cents for every dollar a man earns, and today marks the inauspicious occasion when a woman's earnings finally catch up with a man's from the previous year. On National Equal Pay Day, we underscore the importance of this issue to all Americans.If we wish to honor our Nation's highest ideals, we must end wage discrimination. The Founders established a timeless framework of rights for the American people. Generation after generation has worked and sacrificed so that this framework might be applied equally to all Americans. To honor these Americans and stay true to our founding ideals, we must carry forward this tradition and breathe life into these principles by supporting equal pay for men and women.Wage discrimination has a tangible and negative impact on women and families. When women receive less than their deserved compensation, they take home less for themselves and their loved ones. Utilities and groceries are more difficult to afford. Mortgages and rent bills are harder to pay. Children's higher education is less financially feasible. In later years of life, the retirement that many women have worked so hard for—and have earned—is not possible. This problem is particularly dire for women who are single and the sole supporters of their families. Women should not and need not endure these consequences.My Administration is working to advance pay equity in the ed States. The first bill I signed into law as President, the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of , allows more women to challenge pay discrimination by extending the timeline within which complaints can be filed. This law advances the strugglefor equal pay, but it is only an initial step. To continue this progress, I issued an Executive Order establishing the White House Council on Women and Girls. This high-level body, composed of Cabinet members and heads of sub-Cabinet agencies, is charged with advancing the rights and needs of women, including equal pay.Still, Government can only advance this issue so far. The collective action of businesses, community organizations, and individuals is necessary to ensure that every woman receives just treatment and compensation. We Americans must come together to ensure equal pay for both women and men by reminding ourselves of the basic principles that underlie our Nation's strength and unity, understanding the unnecessary sacrifices that pay inequity causes, and recalling the countless women leaders who have proven what women can achieve.NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the ed States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the ed States, do hereby proclaim April 28, , as National Equal Pay Day. I call upon American men and women, and all employers, to acknowledge the injustice of wage discrimination and to commit themselves to equal pay for equal work.IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this twenty-eighth day of April, in the year of our Lord two thousand nine, and of the Independence of the ed States of America the two hundred and thirty-third.BARACK OBAMA 04/68324
