Key Points In The State of the Union

President Obama offered several visionary ideas in his State of the Union speech last night.

Among the most notable ideas:

  • Buffet Rule – a minimum 30% tax rate for individuals whose income exceeds $1 million. No tax increases for anyone earning less than $250,000.
  • Education– More work-study jobs for low and middle-income students, require students to stay in school until 18th birthday, stop teaching to the “test.”
  • Reform for social programs – Implement plan to save money on Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security
  • Veterans job corps – Helps cities hire former military members
  • Small Business – tax reliefs for those that create jobs
  • Military – Cut budget by more than $500 billion

Did you agree with the President’s plan for the nation if he’s elected to another term? Why or why not?
