Friday Facts: An America Built to Last

This week’s Friday Facts takes a look at President Obama’s State of the Union address, where he laid out his blueprint for an America built to last: one based on American manufacturing, American energy, the skills of American workers, and a renewal of American values.

Here’s a quick rundown of some of the proposals he outlined in his speech:

  • Train and place 2 million Americans in good jobs through partnerships between businesses and community colleges that give workers the skills employers need.

  • Lower tax rates for manufacturing companies that create jobs in the United States.

  • Promote the safe and responsible development of natural gas, which will support more than 600,000 jobs while ensuring public health and safety.
