President Obama said he will press Congress for a new round of stimulus spending and tax cuts to help spur the economy and promote job growth. Obama will detail his ideas, including deficit/debt reduction, in a major address shortly after Labor Day, when he and lawmakers return from vacation, the White House announced.

Some ideas being mulled and/or mentioned already include:

  • Proposing tax cuts for companies hiring new workers, especially jobless workers

  • Renewal of an expiring payroll tax cut, perhaps extending that to an employer payroll tax cut
