STATE OF THE UNION-PKG


IT LOOKED LIKE OTHER STATE OF THE UNION SPEECHES

BUT INSTEAD OF JUST THE USUAL.ASKING CONGRESS TO SUPPORT HIS INITIATIVES

PRESIDENT OBAMA WARNED REPUBLICANS

AND THE NATION WATCHING ON T-V: HE'LL GO IT ALONE.

and I'm eager to work with all of you. 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.

HE'S CREATING THE MyRA. A NEW RETIREMENT SAVING BOND

AND IS HIKING THE MINIMUM WAGE FROM 7-25 TO 1O DOLLARS 10 CENTS FOR WORKERS ON NEW FEDERAL JOBSITES

Of course, to reach millions more, Congress needs to get on board.

So join the rest of the country. Say yes. Give America a raise.

MR. OBAMA TOOK CREDIT FOR PROGRESS

"The lowest unemployment rate in over five years. "

HE ASKED FOR HELP ON OBAMACARE

"Moms, get on your kids to sign up. Kids, call your mom and walk her through the application."

IN THE REPUBLICAN RESPONSE, REPRESENTATIVE CATHY McMORRIS RODGERS SAID HER PARTY WOULD HELP THE MIDDLE CLASS BY SHRINKING GOVERNMENT

Washington :xx-:xx

Plans that focus on jobs first without more spending, government bailouts, and red tape…

BUT, SO SOON AFTER THE FIGHT OVER SPENDING SHUT DOWN GOVERNMENT, PRESIDENT OBAMA IS BETTING HIS VOW TO GO IT ALONE TO GROW JOBS WILL MAKE SENSE TO VOTERS.

FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

Another round of fog is possible again this evening. As temperatures cool before midnight we could see some areas in southwest Florida with reduced visibility for a time. This fog forecast for tonight is not quite the same as last night, because a cold front is moving down the peninsula and should help to break up the fog a little sooner. The front will arrive tomorrow and linger through Thursday. Our weather will likely be very different on Wednesday and Thursday versus what we saw today. Cloudy skies are expected, temperatures will be lower, wind picks up a little, and. some rain showers are possible. The best chance for showers to develop will be late in the day on Wednesday. There will likely be on / off showers on Thursday. Temperatures for the next 2 days will cool into the 60's during the day and into the low 50's at night.

But take heart. the long-range forecast looks just fine for the weekend! Sunshine will start to return on Friday and by Saturday/Sunday we will be back in the 80's with mostly sunny weather. Return to index of stories...
