President Obama will deliver his final State of the Union address tonight at 9PM ET.
Watch how far we’ve come in the past seven years:
Together, We Make Change Happen
“We should not fear the future, but shape it.”
When President Obama took office, we were facing the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. Seven years later, our businesses have created 14.1 million new jobs over the past 70 months. We’ve rebuilt our manufacturing base, reformed our health care system, and reinvented our energy sector. We’ve welcomed home more than 160,000 troops.
We are living through an extraordinary moment in human history. Technological and social change is reshaping the way we live, the way we work, our environment, and our place in the world. But as Americans, we’ve been through big changes before and, like generations past, we can make change work for us. In his speech, President Obama laid out his plan to seize opportunities before us. In looking forward, there are four big questions that we as a country have to answer.
For all the challenges we face, the truth is that no country on Earth is better poised to seize the future than the United States. And if we answer these four basic questions, then there is nothing that America can’t do.
