In his speech, President Obama will announce a proposed plan to give loans to small businesses via the $30 billion in funds from the Troubled Assets Relief Program (TARP), popularly known as the bank bailout funds. According to the prepared remarks, he will say: “Small businesses like this have created roughly 65 percent of all new jobs over the past decade and a half. And I think we should make it easier for them to open their doors, expand their operations, and hire more workers. That’s why I’ve proposed a new tax credit for more than one million small businesses that hire new workers or raise wages – and a tax incentive for all businesses to invest in new plants and equipment. And while we’re at it, we should eliminate all capital gains taxes on small business investment, so these folks can get the capital they need to grow and create jobs.”
