Washington, DC – President Barack Obama delivered the 2014 State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress Tuesday outlining his agenda. During his hour long speech he called climate change a “fact,” defined his health care program and challenged business owners to pay minimum wage workers at least $10.00 an hour.
President Obama went on to say that he can’t get Congress to cooperate on issues like climate change, he will sign executive orders going it alone without the support of Congress.
“Some require congressional action, and I’m eager to work with all of you,” Obama said. “But America does not stand still – and neither will I. So wherever and whenever I can take steps without legislation to expand opportunity for more American families, that’s what I’m going to do.”
Calling it steeped in class warfare and contempt for the Constitution, commentators with the Project 21 black leadership network are highly critical of President Barack Obama’s address.
Stacy Swimp, spokesman for the Project 21 black leadership network, and president of the Frederick Douglass Society, maintains that while the president talks about creating jobs, this is the same president that embracing big labor policies that stifle economic development.
“Mr. President, the America people don’t need your help,” said Swimp. “We need you to do what Frederick Douglass told the government that emancipated slaves needed them to do:
‘We need you to leave us alone! Let us alone altogether! Let us stand upon our own legs, work with our own hands, and eat bread in the sweat of our own brows.’”
