By Eric Morales     Nov 29, 2012 in Politics
Hatfield - It isn't to pick up presents to give to voters - Obama will stop in the Keystone State to discuss the Fiscal Cliff, as well as how retail sales could plunge by the hundreds of billions.
The White House tells Politico, President Barack Obama will visit Hatfield, in Montgomery County Pennsylvania on Friday. On his agenda is a visit to a manufacturing plant with the Rodon Group, which manufactures Tinkertoy, K'NEX Building Sets, as well as Angry Birds Building Sets among other things.
Come Friday the President will have wrapped up a week of meetings with staff, business leaders and a Thursday lunch with former rival for the White House, Governor Mitt Romney. This week also saw the President sit down with Mexican President-elect Enrique Peña Nieto, as well as a meeting with his cabinet on Wednesday.
According to the Politico report, Obama will make his case for tax increases by raising concerns over holiday shopping. A report issued by the Council of Economic Advisers and the National Economic Council, states that retail spending could plunge this year, if taxes were allowed to go up on middle-class families. The plummet in spending could be as high as $200 Billion.
The visit to the Keystone state, has all the earmarks of when Obama took his plan to extend the payroll tax on the road, which resulted in Congress taking action.
