President Obama buoyed up his reelection win, used his State of the Union address Tuesday night to push for more government spending, challenge Republicans over Medicare and declare that victims of gun violence “deserve a vote” on a comprehensive gun control package.

In what was successfully the kick-off address of his second term, Obama mainly pushed on with the policies of his first, while adding a timetable of list items, including an urge to increase the federal minimum wage to $9 an hour, up from $7.25, and get ahead of immigration reforms.

The speech was swathed in the premise of enhancing the middle class and shaking what continues to be a lackadaisical economic recovery.

Nonetheless Republicans saw in his address a president hanging on to ideas they have continually rejected, and strongly believed it does not work.
