Obama to increase use of presidential authority for economic plans

|By:, SA News Editor

President Obama is expected to say in his State of the Union speech tomorrow evening that he plans to increase his use of executive authority to implement his economic and other proposals.

Obama intends to take unilateral action and bypass Congress on issues such as infrastructure development, job training, climate change and education.

He is also expected to reveal that a number of major employers, including Xerox, AT&T, Lockheed Martin and Procter & Gamble, have signed a non-bonding pledge not to discriminate against the long-term unemployed.
