Monday Night, Obama held a national tv appearance, followed by comments from Republican House Speaker John Boehner. On Tuesday, White House Administration Officials will hold “Office Hours” on our social networks to answer your questions about the President’s speech and the ongoing deficit debate. Brian Deese, Deputy Director of the National Economic Council and Special Assistant to the President, will be answering your questions on Twitter Tuesday at 5:00 p.m. EDT. Ask your questions with the hashtag #WHChat and stay tuned for opportunities to engage throughout week.
