We analyze the State of the Union Address President Barack Obama gave on Tuesday evening. The president highlighted economic recovery and his plan to strengthen the middle class. We'll review his proposals -- including tax hikes for the wealthy, two free years of community college and new investment in infrastructure projects -- and we'll discuss their likelihood of adoption in a Republican-controlled Congress.
