State of the Union Preview

Tonight is the State of the Union, the yearly address to a joint session of Congress by the President. This year is bound to be an absolute doozy.

Warren, a vocal advocate against school choice, was caught on tape telling a pro-school-choice activist that she sent her children to public school.
