UPDATE: Here is the full Obama Baltimore Jobs tax credit speech transcript from Jan. 29 (from earlier in the day, prior to the GOP Retreat).
The President first made mention of the jobs tax credit during his 2010 State of the Union Address. As proposed, it will offer a $5,000 tax credit for each new job created, up to $500,000 per company. Businesses also have the option to raise wages or hours or receive reimbursement for Social Security payroll taxes. According to USA, quoting White House sources, the end result, either way, is to lower the cost for businesses to hire workers.

In speaking on the jobs tax credit proposal, he noted the newly released economic report on the 5.7 percent growth rate in the fourth quarter in his address: “This morning we received a report that affirms our progress and the swift and aggressive actions that made it possible.”
