President Barack Obama is set to visit our own Montgomery County, PA as part of a public outreach promotion this week. The stop in Montgomery County, PA is scheduled as part of an effort to gain support in the small business community and to pressure Congress to extend tax cuts for middle-income Americans while ending them for families who make over $250,000.00 a year.
Obama will visit The Radon Group manufacturing facility in Hatfield, PA on Friday. The Radon Group is a plastics and toy manufacturer located in Montgomery County and the sole U.S. manufacturer for K’NEX Brands, which includes Tinkertoys, K’NEX Building sets and Angry Bird Building sets. The Radon Group workplace in Montgomery County, PA employs more than 150 people in the area.
President Obama’s visit to the Montgomery County, PA small business is part of a weeklong push to help garner support for his administration’s proposals to solve U.S. fiscal problems that will arise as a result of the looming “fiscal cliff,” a combination of tax increases and spending cuts that will go into effect January 1 if Democrats and Republicans don’t reach a deal to stop its implementation.
“The President will travel to Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, to continue making the public case for action by visiting a business that depends on middle class consumers during the holiday season, and could be impacted if taxes go up on 98 percent of Americans at the end of the year,” a White House official said.
