My top three items out of many proposals last night from President Obama (especially for the middle and lower class citizens):
1. "Raise the Federal Minimum wage to $9 an hour." A new and better stimulus plan.
2. Immigration: "Send me a comprehensive immigration reform bill in the next few months. I will sign it..."
3. "Cut red tape for responsible home owners to make refinancing more available...Help our economy grow..."
Overall: a great speech, well delivered. I am proud to have Barack Obama as my President.
I viewed the State of the Union on the "enhanced" stream from the White House. It was much better than the view on MSNBC, but I recorded the TV version on DVR and plan to watch to see what I missed the first time around.
