President Obama will give State of the Union on January 27th healthcare reform could be main topic

President Obama will give his first State of the Union address (though many newly inaugurated presidents advise congress of their legislative agenda weeks into their first term they are not technically a State of the Union addresses, but rather a presidential speech in front of a joint session of congress)on Wednesday, January 27th, at 9:00 P.M EST.

 

Insiders have speculated that the President decided to make his address on the 27th in case Martha Coakley lost her election, on Tuesday the 19th, ,against (R.) Scott Brown for the Massachusetts Senate seat once held by the late Edward Kennedy. The outcome of that election could put healthcare reform legislation in serious jeopardy. If Coakley losses the race the president could then spend time addressing the nation on the importance of passing healthcare reform during the State of the Union.

 


The State of the Union will be televised live on all major networks and streamed live from the White House’s official website. The scheduled date for the President’s state of the Union has put executives at ABC at ease because the President’s address won’t interfere with the 3 hour premiere of the show Lost.
