If you missed Trumps SOTU address last night, fear not. You missed nothing. In addition to being one of the longest states of the unions in history, the president said surprisingly little.
I would imagine most Americans lost interest after the first hour of Trump explaining all the great things he's done for the nation, but I'll throw out a couple of highlights today so that you don't feel left out.
I think these types of events are pointless. I wouldn't have watched it myself except for the fact that I know most of YOU didn't watch it and somebody needs to be keeping up with this stuff. :-)
The SOTU address is a sales pitch. It always is. This one was no different.
Further evidence of this came from the Treasury Department who plans to issue close to a trillion dollars of new debt this year. Not surprising given the fact that Trumps tax cut came with an additional 1.4 trillion in new unfunded expenses. You can't get something for nothing.
