Saturday Speeches: Budget, Payroll Tax [VIDEO]

President Barack Obama and Republicans used the weekly radio and internet addresses to ask voters to weigh in on a couple of big questions.

Obama wants voters to get involved in the debate over extending the payroll tax holiday.

Obama asks voters to tell Congress “not to vote to raise taxes on working Americans during the holidays” and to “put country before party.”

Republicans are promoting a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution, which is headed for a vote in the Senate after failing in the House last month.

Maine Sen. Olympia Snowe, argues that the amendment represents “a choice between changing business as usual in Washington or embracing the status quo that we can no longer afford.”

Like Obama, she asked listeners to make their views known to their lawmakers.
