I thought it was a great State of the Union speech.

Among the president's accomplishments in the past year  are these: Unemployment rates are the lowest they've been in 17 years. Companies are coming back from overseas to build factories and hire Americans. GDP growth is up from 1 percent annually to more than 3 percent. Government regulations have been cut faster than any time in history. More than 2 million jobs have been created.

The Islamic State is getting beat. We are fixing the Deptartment of Veterans Affairs.

Since the large tax cuts for all, more than 100 companies have been giving bonuses and raising salaries. Our 401Ks are higher.

I think more Americans are encouraged and optimistic, as I am.
