Watch and chat live with PoliticusUSA as President Obama addresses income inequality during his fifth State Of The Union address.
President Obama will have some blunt words about income inequality tonight.
The president will say,
Today, after four years of economic growth, corporate profits and stock prices have rarely been higher, and those at the top have never done better. But average wages have barely budged. Inequality has deepened. Upward mobility has stalled. The cold, hard fact is that even in the midst of recovery, too many Americans are working more than ever just to get by – let alone get ahead. And too many still aren’t working at all.
Our job is to reverse these tides. It won’t happen right away, and we won’t agree on everything. But what I offer tonight is a set of concrete, practical proposals to speed up growth, strengthen the middle class, and build new ladders of opportunity into the middle class.
Chat is Closed.
It should be a great address, and we look forward to watching it with you.
