We the People: Obama's Final State of the Union

Posted by Nadia Aziz on January 14, 2016 in Blog
On Tuesday night, President Obama delivered his eighth and final State of the Union (SOTU) address. Outlining his speech with four “big questions” for America to address, he discussed the progress his Administration has made, and where he would like to see America in 10 years and beyond.

Below are some of our takeaways from last night’s speech and the Republican response by Governor Nikki Haley.
