CRFB Livetweets and Fact Checks the State of the Union

Tonight at 9:00 PM, President Obama will address Congress and the nation in the State of the Union address. As he lays out his agenda for this year, CRFB will be following along and providing analysis of the budget-related policies he mentions. We hope the President will address our long-term debt problem in his remarks and set the stage for a bipartisan deficit reduction effort. Although the deficit is temporarily down, deficits are projected to climb into the foreseeable future and our long-term problems remain far from solved.

Stay tuned below or at @budgethawks on Twitter as we live tweet and fiscal fact check the debate. Our friends at @FixtheDebt will also tweeting and providing reactions. And if you haven't printed out your DEBT-O boards tonight, go here and play along!
