Was the State of the Union Address All You Hoped it Would Be?
President Barack Obama gave his State of the Union address Tuesday. Was it a source of comfort for you or did it leave you with concerns about the country going forward?
President Barack Obama's State of the Union address Tuesday may well be the most important speech he's ever given. It sets the tone for the legacy he will leave behind at the end of his final term. While he did say the state of the Union is "stronger," he also went on to say that there is work still to be done. His emphasis was on reigniting what he called "the true engine of America's economic growth - a rising, thriving, middle class."
If you missed it, here is the full text from the president's SOTU address from ABC News.
In the Republican response, however, Sen. Marco Rubio R-Fla., said that the vision the president laid out relied on government to fix everything, saying, "to make it to the middle class or beyond no matter where you start out in life – it isn't bestowed on us from Washington. It comes from a vibrant free economy where people can risk their own money to open a business."
