Best / Worst of the President’s State of the Union Speech

President Obama Delivers State Of The Union Address
Best line: “It should be the power of our vote, not the size of our bank account, that drives democracy.” Amen.
Worst proposal: Calling on Congress to pass “Trade Promotion Authority.” This is a fancy name for “Fast Track,” which would ram the administration-negotiated Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) through Congress with virtually no discussion or debate, limited time to review it and no opportunity to amend it. TPP would expand corporate power and rights and undermine self-governance.
