White House Senior Adviser Previews State of the Union
White House Senior Adviser Dan Pfeiffer was on Fox News Sunday to preview President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address, scheduled for Tuesday.
Pfeiffer says the nation will hear “a series of concrete, practical specific proposals on how we restore opportunity through a wide set of means.”
In his 2013 State of the Union, Obama proposed raising the minimum wage to $9, universal preschool and major tax reform. There has been no progress on any of those.
Pfeiffer said there are two things Obama did in 2013 that don’t get enough attention: he put in place a climate action plan to reduce carbon pollution and he worked with the FCC on an initiative to provide wireless access to 99 percent of the nation’s school districts. Both of those were done without Congress, Pfeiffer said.
Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace and Pfeiffer discussed a wide range of topics, from ObamaCare to immigration. Watch the full interview above.
