President Obama: State Of The Union Address

Last night President Obama addressed the nation and gave us an update on an array of topics as usual from education,jobs,the wars,healthcare,the economy and below are some of the highlight quotes that stood out for me:

Starting this year, no American will be forbidden from serving the country they love because of who they love. #SOTU

the above quote was in regards to the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell ban on gays in the military.

Obama: "Before we take money away from our schools... we should ask millionaires to give up their tax breaks" #SOTU

This was on the %2 tax that was proposed on the rich.

Every day, families sacrifice to live within their means. They deserve a government that does the same. #SOTU

‎"I’m not willing to go back to the days when insurance companies could deny someone coverage because of a pre-existing condition." ~Obama

This is Obama talking about the healthcare bill.

Instead of re-fighting the battles of the last two years, let’s fix what needs fixing and move forward. #SOTU

Obama here talking about Republicans and Democrats coming together as one.

‎"If you want to make a difference in the life of a child – become a teacher. Your country needs you." ~Barack Obama

This right here is why I love My President great quote of the evening.

All the above quotes were just some of what stood out for me personally as i watched the 1hr and 1 min long State Of The Union Address congrats Mr. President you rock and I am honored and glad that you are indeed leading us in the right way and that these next 2 years will be great years for our country as a whole.
