What To Expect From The State Of The Union Address 2014
In terms of what to expect in the President's speech, here are a few themes that will likely be repeated:
- Increase economic fairness: The president will likely continue to discuss his mission to wage war on poverty in tonight's live stream of the State of the Union Address.
- Executive action: Obama coined the term "Year of Action" to describe how he planned to approach 2014. It is expected some discussion of moving forward amid a gridlocked congress through the use of executive action will be heard.
