Each year, I write about the president’s State of the Union speech to try to get an idea of what’s in store for consumers in the coming year from the federal government’s point of view.
This year, I wasn’t expecting much because Congress is so deadlocked, and in this presidential election year, we’re getting nothing but political rhetoric. And, shockingly, some Republican candidates continue to spew hate speech.
Surprisingly, Pres. Barack Obama offered a solution that is important for the American consumer. Obama called on Americans to vote, speak out, and stand up for others.
He said we need every American to live a public life, adding democracy is difficult, and Americans need to do daily acts of citizenship.
