President Obama’s Fifth State of the Union Address

President Obama

President Obama kicked off his second term with the 2013 State of the Union Address. His speech focused on domestic issues, along with a condemnation of yesterday’s North Korean nuclear test. The main focus was on job creation; the President called on Congress to increase minimum wage to $9/hour as well as to avoid the March 1 automatic spending cuts that are forecasted to throw the economy back into recession.

The President also proposed a plan to protect the nation’s electronic infrastructure from outside attacks, commended the bi-partisan plan for immigration overhaul, and pushed for increased gun control in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting.
