Fighting for a U.S. federal budget that prioritizes peace, economic security and shared prosperity
This evening President Obama will deliver his fifth State of the Union address. A White House spokesperson indicated that President Obama wants 2014 to be a “year of action.”
By e-mail and social media, we asked you to weigh in about what you think the president should cover during his speech – about what actions he should take in the coming year. Here's what you said:
These hopes and priorities that you articulated track closely with the findings of a recent Pew Research Center poll which found that the majority of Americans want to strength our nation’s economy and improve the job situation. Sixty-nine percent want to improve our nation’s educational system and 66 percent want to make Social Security sound.
There are a lot of ways to engage with this evening’s State of the Union via Facebook, Twitter, and the web, as well as during the ensuing virtual road trip around the country using Google+ Hangouts. NPP’s team will also be tweeting. Follow @natpriorities tonight and in the days ahead as we crack open federal spending and revenue so that you can make your voice heard.
