The President stood strong on jobs, unfair taxes, corruption in government, and asking Congress to take action. First Lady Michelle Obama’s box was full, with a school teacher, a woman who is unemployed and Warren Buffet’s secretary! The President made a clear point of addressing the “Buffet rule” and that the rich should be paying their fair share. He also addressed tuition hikes, true immigration reform including the Dream Act, and much more. Overall, it was a great State of the Union that fought for our values and those of the 99%.
