WASHINGTON (RNN) - President Barack Obama will lay out a blueprint he says will have a lasting impact on the U.S. economy during Tuesday's State of the Union address.
"Tonight, I want to speak about how we move forward and lay out a blueprint for an economy that's built to last - an economy built on American manufacturing, American energy, skills for American workers and a renewal of American values," the president will say during his third report on the nation's progress, according to remarks posted on a White House blog.
The excerpt was one of several released by the White House in advance of the president's 9 p.m. ET speech before a joint session of Congress.
Obama will say that it is within the nation's reach to have "an economy built to last, where hard work pays off and responsibility is rewarded." And according to the president, the defining issue of our time is how to keep that promise alive.
"We can either settle for a country where a shrinking number of people do really well, while a growing number of Americans barely get by, or we can restore an economy where everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share and everyone plays by the same set of rules," his prepared remarks read.
But the president will say that an America built to last insists on responsibility from everyone, as he calls for no bailouts, handouts or copouts from the government and financial sector.
One of the released excerpts aims a clear attack at the GOP, all but assuring a politically charged address. The stakes are high for Obama, as he looks forward to a November election.
"As long as I'm president, I will work with anyone in this chamber to build on this momentum," Obama will say. "But I intend to fight obstruction with action, and I will oppose any effort to return to the very same policies that brought on this economic crisis in the first place."
