Trump’s State of the Union Address

President Trump appeared to stick meticulously to the script for his first State of the Union Address, outlining both his accomplishments and the strength of the American people. Unfortunately, many Democrats conspicuously failed to applaud rising wages, low unemployment, record low minority unemployment, low prescription prices, and a high stock market. Although other Democrats immediately took to the airwaves peddling their identity politics as usual, they conspicuously ignored a small but important part of Trump agenda going forward: prison reform. The United States has one of the highest per capita incarceration rates in the world, at a cost of $74 billion per year. True fiscal conservatives like President Trump and Florida Governor Scott have now gone on record supporting reforms to our penal system to ensure that incarceration serves the rehabilitative ends to which it is directed.
