State of the Union 2013: Your Reaction
Tuesday night, President Obama faced the nation to deliver his annual State of the Union address. He focused largely on four priorities -- creating more educational opportunities, immigration reform, climate change and jobs/lessening poverty. He also urged Congress to vote on new gun laws that will make it harder for criminals to get their hands on a gun, and outlined goals to cut the deficit by nearly $4 trillion. (You'll have an opportunity to weigh in on the gun debate later.)

Specifically, the president said that he wants to raise minimum wage to $9 an hour, lessen wait times for immigrants seeking to enter the U.S. legally, reduce pollution and "speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy" and to invest more in high quality preschool education.
