So many take-aways from the State of the Union last night:
Chuck Schumer’s smirk when the President discussed late term and post-birth abortion.
Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez remaining seated and refusing to applaud the 300 young women ICE rescued from a life of human trafficking:
Trump’s call for an additional 500M for childhood cancer research (the least funded cancer research.) Pelosi later ripped the amount as not enough – well, it’s more funding than she’s giving it. It’s true that President Trump could cure cancer and the Democrats would somehow find fault in the process.
Bernie’s scowl when the president stated that we would NEVER become a socialist country.
Neither did the Democrats applaud record low minority unemployment.
Another call for rebuilding infrastructure in the country.
His closing minutes were a reach across the aisle and a reminder that we are one amazing country, minutes that were quite inspirational and illustrated the skill he has as an orator, when he’s not angry-Tweeting.
Overall, the State of the Union was met with outstanding approval by a huge majority, as polled by CBS.
We’d love to hear from you in the comments – tell us which part of the State of the Union had the most impact for our country.
In a recent AEI/NORC study, they found that the American Dream isn’t what they expected. It’s not wealth, owning a home, or having a successful career, instead 85% of respondents stated that the “American Dream” to them is being able to live how they want.
