He will touch on a major tax overhaul, cybersecurity, and of course, economic recovery. We can expect employment to be, yet again, a top theme (get the seven top money topics to be discussed here). In fact, to date, the president has uttered the word "jobs" 152 times total across his SOTU speeches.
