Share your reaction to President Obama's State of the Union speech
With his party reeling from the loss of a Senate seat in Massachusetts and doubts increasing about whether he'll be able to pass his health care plan, President Barack Obama challenged Congress -- and the nation -- to put aside partisanship and tackle the difficult problems facing the country.
"Rather than fight the same tired battles that have dominated Washington for decades, it’s time for something new," he said. "Let’s try common sense. Let’s invest in our people without leaving them a mountain of debt. Let’s meet our responsibility to the people who sent us here."
