Tonight President Barack Obama will gives his second to last State of the Union address. The speech is expected to focus largely on policies that are geared towards the middle class including higher taxes on capital gains, inheritance, and Wall Street to help offset tax credits and cuts for lower income Americans.

According to the New York Times President Obama will say “Will we accept an economy where only a few of us do spectacularly well, or will we commit ourselves to an economy that generates rising incomes and chances for everyone who makes the effort?”

President Obama is also set to highlight the threat of cyberwarfare as well as promote the controversial Transpacific Partnership (TPP) agreement. Recent reports also note that President Obama will speak to racial division and the controversy related to police brutality.

The speech will begin at 9 pm EST.
