On the Political Front, NHPR's Josh Rogers talks with Morning Edition host Rick Ganley about how the Democratic members of New Hampshire's Congressional delegation - all facing re-election next fall - are now supporting changes to the Affordable Care Act.
For an hour and five minutes, President Barack Obama addressed the country for his 5th State of the Union address. Obama lauded progress the country has made from decreasing unemployment to smaller deficits. He talked about recent successes of the Affordable Care Act and spoke out about progress that still needs to be made: higher wages for women, and raising the minimum wage. And he showed a little extra swagger saying that if congress won’t go along with his ideas, then President Obama will go at it alone.
