Last week, the now-ended Obama campaign emailed its long list of supporters that the president would be working with both parties to reduce the deficit in order to "lay the foundation for long-term middle-class job growth and prevent your taxes from going up."
So while the president hits the road to push his fiscal cliff agenda, it will be interesting to see how much he employs the middle-class tax cut rhetoric and how much, or little, he focuses on jobs jobs jobs. But without Republicans raising a stink about the need to focus on employment, the president may not have to switch from his tax cut mantra.
