Obama pushes Congress for payroll tax cut

(CNN) - On Tuesday, President Obama made another push for the payroll tax cut for the middle class that is set to expire in two weeks.

After a contentious debate in December, Congress agreed to a temporary extension of the payroll tax cut until February 29.

The White House estimates a person making $50,000 a year could lose $40 per paycheck without it.

The President urged Americans to keep pushing members of Congress until an extension is passed.
