President Barack Obama is pledging an economic revival that will work for everyone and not just the rich, declaring that “the defining issue of our time” is the endangered promise of the American dream. He’s using his State of the Union address Tuesday night to draw a battle line with Republicans over how to avoid a nation of haves and have-nots.
In excerpts of his speech released in advance, Obama attacked income equality and offered an economic agenda built upon boosting manufacturing, energy and education. He will call for requiring the rich to pay more in taxes and try to appeal to the independent voters and frustrated masses whose support he needs to keep his job…
…”We can either settle for a country where a shrinking number of people do really well while a growing number barely get by. Or we can restore an economy where everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share and everyone plays by the same set of rules,” the president said.
