The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama is spending this tax filing deadline week focusing on the economy.

The White House says Obama is going to draw contrasts with Republicans on tax proposals in a series of interviews and events.

His activities come as the House plans to vote this week on repealing the inheritance tax on large estates. The White House says it would only benefit 5,400 households.

On Monday, Obama is taking his message local in interviews with television stations from Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, South Dakota, Ohio and Maine. Tuesday he plans a White House event promoting equal pay.

On Wednesday the president plans to travel to Charlotte, North Carolina, to meet with women about budget policies to support families. And on Thursday he plans a White House event on family-friendly workplace policies.
