This morning NBC News has learned that President Obama will call for a one-year extension of tax cuts for those Americans making $250,000 and less. The President will make the announcement from the White House today. He's expected to spend much of the rest of the week promoting his economic recovery plan in the battleground states of New Hampshire, Nevada, and Colorado. Republicans will reportedly respond to the President by calling for an extension of all the Bush tax cuts, including those for wealthier Americans.
Of course tax cuts are just one of the wedge issues this election cycle - jobs and health care being prominent as well. Alex Wagner is back and we'll explore them all with the panel today at noon ET. See you then!
