Thank you for the convenient posting of the SOTU schedule! I appreciate what President Obama has done for the country so far, however, tonight we need to HEAR what we need to HEAR regarding continued and greater economic recovery for the Middle Class as well as health care, otherwise, I am moderately concerned President Obama is going to lose momentum and support! Everyone wants CLEAR and DEFINITE action now and inasmuch as the Republican members of Congress will not cooperate on anything, the Democrats should just proceed without them...... WITHOUT apology or regret. just conducted a study with 1050 viewers of President Obama’s State of the Union address. Results found that favorability for the President’s plans for health care, the economy, and foreign policy increased among all political parties after viewing President Obama’s State of the Union Address. In addition, the percentage of respondents who indicated that they would vote for Barack Obama if he ran for a second term increased among all parties. More in-depth results can be seen at:

Yeah you right Davey! pex

The reform is just starting to kick in, so we'll see where it goes. Once thing is certain - the changes will be significant and we're all going to feel it.
