President Obama to deliver jobs speech Thursday evening

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Obama is expected to propose $300 billion in tax cuts and federal spending when he unveils his jobs agenda in a nationally televised address Thursday night.

People familiar with the plan say the two biggest measures are expected to be a one-year extension of a payroll tax cut for workers and an extension of expiring jobless benefits, which would total about $170 billion.

WYMT will have live coverage of the president's speech Thursday night beginning at seven right after the CBS Evening News.
