LIVE: Watch the State of the Union

Tonight is President Obama’s fifth State of the Union address, you can watch it live here.

In preparation, the Obama administration announced he is going to use an executive order to increase the minimum wage for new government contracts to $10.10 an hour. This move signals that Obama is going to make inequality a big focus of his address. It also likely means Obama will spend much of the speech highlighting what he plans to do via executive power since the prospects of getting anything through the Republican-controlled House are slim to none.

Will he press to fast track the Trans-Pacific Partnership pact?

Please leave your thoughts about the speech in the comments.
