State Of The Union: Guns, Economy, Immigrants

On Feb. 12, President Barack Obama will deliver the 2013 State of the Union address. The speech is expected to focus on the economy and gun violence in America.

Just weeks after his Jan. 21 swearing in and weeks before the government reaches its next economic breaking point, the President’s speech is expected to include a call to action for lawmakers to turn around the economic situation.

Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio) invited the President to make the speech in a letter sent to the White House on Friday.

“Our nation continues to face immense challenges, and the American people expect us to work together in the new year to find meaningful solutions,” Boehner wrote. “This will require a willingness to seek common ground as well as presidential leadership. For that reason, the Congress and the Nation would welcome to an opportunity to hear your plan and specific solutions for addressing America’s great challenges. Therefore it is my privilege to invite you to speak before a Joint Session of Congress on February 12, 2013 in the House Chamber of the U.S. Capitol Building.”

Following meetings last week between the Administration and gun-control and gun-rights groups, Vice President Joe Biden is slated to deliver a working plan on curbing gun violence in America to the President on Tuesday. This plan will likely also be a topic during the State of the Union speech.

Obama press secretary Jay Carney also alluded to the President’s interest in addressing immigration reform in the speech, something Obama has vowed to make a top priority in his second term.
