Live State Of The Union 2014 Address To Congress And The Nation By President Barack Obama

By Kathleen
President Barack Obama will address a joint session of Congress and the nation this evening at 9 p.m. EST in the televised annual State of the Union address. 
Income inequality across America definitely seems to be on the President's mind and the White House has promised that his speech will include promises of measures to help the unemployed, action to raise the minimum wage for new federal contracts, a renewal of Obama's call last year to Congress to raise the minimum wage for every American worker and job training programmes to help the long term unemployed.

The official GOP response will be given by Cathy McMorris Rodgers. Rand Paul and Mike Lee will also offer State of the Union rebuttal speeches. Rand Paul has already recorded his rebuttal which will be available online soon after the SOTU speech ends and Mike Lee will be speaking on behalf of the Tea Party. 
Please feel free to comment.
