Obama Doubles Down on the Politics of Envy

by Iain Murray

There’s so much to critique in the State of the Union address that there’s still plenty left over after all the excellent critiques elsewhere on the site. I’ll note primarily that for someone who banged the populist drum so relentlessly last night, the President seems to have doubled down on policies that harm the middle class most of all.

I have more on that point in my column for the Daily Mail (which I wrote before I’d seen Speaker Boehner’s comments about the president’s policies being “almost un-American“).
