State of the Union

Watch Commentary on President Obama's SOTU

"The really striking thing about the speech was how inappropriate it was for the time. We have a number of very specific economic troubles in the last few years and most of the ideas in the speech, whether good or bad, hold no particular relevance for the troubles of our times."— Josh Barro

"The problem is that Americans understand too well what government-driven health care is all about. And that's why the President didn't talk about it in his speech. . . In fact the key legacy of Obamacare if it stays as law is what it does to fix our entitlement crisis into a further trend of runaway growth." — Avik Roy
