President Obama continues to drop State of the Union spoiler alerts leading up to annual address to the nation on Tuesday.
The president plans to unveil a mix of legislative proposals and execution actions in front of a joint session of Congress. Unlike other years where the content of the speech remained hush-hush until the last minute, this year Obama tried out a different approach by announcing some of his ideas ahead of time. We've gotten a taste of what he plans to discuss, ranging from an education push to make community college free for students who qualify to amping up the country's cyber-security efforts in the wake of the recent Sony and Centom hacks.
