Americans worried about a middle class tax hike will have the chance to ask President Obama questions about coming changes on Twitter.
The White House announced the president was taking tweets about the looming Fiscal Cliff's impact on average Americans.
Obama will host a question and answer discussion on Twitter Monday at 2:00 p.m. ET which is 12pm here in the borderland.
"In the past week, over 300 thousand Americans from across the country have tweeted and e-mailed to tell us what extending income tax for middle class families means to them. President Obama just sent a tweet announcing that he will answer questions on Twitter about extending middle class tax cuts today at 2 p.m. People can ask the president questions on Twitter with the hash tag my2k. You can all follow that chat at Twitter.com/white house." said Jay Carney, White House Press Secretary
The hashtag represents the $2,000 Americans are expected to save if the tax cuts are extended, according to the administration.
Obama personally tweeted at 12:30pm ET Monday about his Q&A.
"Good to see lots of folks on twitter speaking out on extending middle class tax cuts. I'll answer some Qs on that at 2ET. Ask w/ #My2k -bo"
