FEATURED STORY: Obama Confirms Fears of More Spending in his State of the Union

 

Tuesday's State of the Union Address didn't surprise anyone. For the third year in a row, President Obama chose to ignore the failure of his spending programs and pledged to spend even more, promising new federal investments in money-losing propositions like green energy and high-speed rail. CEI experts anticipated the President's remarks in a release circulated the morning of the speech, which included a short video about the history of failed presidential promises on "clean" energy. Then, on Tuesday night, Fellow in Regulatory Studies Ryan Young liveblogged the address on OpenMarket.org You can read his commentary here.
