President considers tax credit to hire veterans
from U.S. Department of Defense
A tax credit for companies that hire military veterans could be the next step in helping the acutely underemployed group, President Barack Obama suggested in his Twitter town hall meeting. The president addressed many economic issues surrounding his theme of how to reduce the federal deficit, and was asked about jobs for veterans while fielding questions submitted on Twitter. A Twitter user asked the president, "Can you give companies a tax break if they hire an honorably discharged veteran?" That, Obama said, is a subject he's discussing with his staff.
