After the Senate punted his bill to cut the payroll tax last week, President Obama is asking the public for help to push through the measures. "Let your members of Congress know where you stand," Obama said Saturday in his weekly radio address. Obama directed listeners to the White House website to see for themselves how much money they would save from the extension of the payroll- tax holiday. According to the online calculator, a family making $50,000 a year would pay $1,000 more in taxes if the bill is not passed by the end of the year.
