Cato scholars address Obama’s first speech to Congress.

President Barack Obama’s first address to Congress laid out a laundry list of new spending contained within the stimulus legislation and provided hints as to what will be contained in the budget — a so‐​called “blueprint for America’s future” — he submits to the legislature. Cato Institute scholars Chris Edwards, Jim Harper, Gene Healy, Neal McCluskey, David Rittgers, John Samples and Michael D. Tanner offer their analyses of the President’s non‐​State‐​of‐​the‐​Union Address.
