Inequality Message Will Dominate State of the Union Address

President Obama "will try to pump some vitality into a lackluster second term on Tuesday when he delivers his State of the Union address. The address will include a "healthy dose" of the income inequality message the White House has focused on in recent weeks," The Hill reports.

"A president who has yet to add to the big legislative accomplishments of his first term will call for raising the minimum wage to $10 per hour and extending federal unemployment benefits that expired last month. He will also discuss energy and college affordability, two other issues that relate to the economic mobility message that is a major White House theme ahead of this year's midterm elections."
