    The White House

    Office of the Press Secretary
    For Immediate Release April 16, 2011

    Weekly Address: “We Can Live Within Our Means and Live Up to the Values We Share as Americans”

    WASHINGTON – In his weekly address, President Obama said that to restore fiscal responsibility, we all need to share in the sacrifice – but we don’t have to sacrifice the America we believe in. Earlier this week, the President proposed a balanced approach to cut the deficit, which matches the $4 trillion in deficit reduction put forward by House Republicans’ plan. The President’s proposal does this by combing the entire budget for savings and asking everyone to do their part. The Republican plan, though, would end Medicare as we know it and make drastic cuts to education, infrastructure and clean energy, while giving away $1 trillion in tax breaks to the wealthiest two percent.

    The audio of the address is and video of the address will be available online at www.whitehouse.gov at 6:00 a.m. ET, Saturday, April 16, 2011.

    Debt ceiling: Battle heats up
    By Jeanne Sahadi, senior writer
    April 15, 2011: 5:49 PM ET

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Everybody's talking about debt. No wonder: The country's tab is a whisker away from the current debt ceiling.

    The rhetoric is already loud, harsh and, at times, misleading. And there is more to come.

    President Obama tries to ease environmentalist fears
    By: CNN's Cody Combs

    Washington (CNN)- President Obama surprised a group of young environmental organizers Friday during what they thought was just a meeting with White House staffers about energy policy.

    "We went in thinking we were meeting with senior staff and there walked in Barack Obama," said Courtney Hight, co-director of Energy Action Coalition, "We got to share with him what we care about."

    Your 2010 Federal Taxpayer Receipt

    In his State of the Union Address, President Obama promised that this year, for the first time ever, American taxpayers would be able to go online and see exactly how their federal tax dollars are spent. Just enter a few pieces of information about your taxes, and the taxpayer receipt will give you a breakdown of how your tax dollars are spent on priorities like education, veterans benefits, or health care.

    Obama to hit road to rally support for debt reduction plan ahead of budget battles
    By Zachary A. Goldfarb and Perry Bacon Jr., Sunday, April 17, 9:15 PM

    President Obama will hit the road this week and forcibly deliver his message that a combination of spending cuts and tax hikes on the rich are necessary to rein in the nation’s rocketing debt — a high-stakes effort to rally public support ahead of a series of contentious budget battles in Congress.

    From Northern Virginia Community College in Annandale to Facebook’s headquarters in Silicon Valley, Obama will make a series of campaign-style stops in an effort to block a Republican plan that would reduce the deficit by dramatically changing Medicare and reducing spending on education and other social programs.
