The day after Obama called for investment in infrastructure and cutting the corporate tax rate in his State of the Union speech, he travelled to Manitowoc, Wisconsin – our JOHN NICHOLS was there and will report. John of course is Washington Correspondent for The Nation and writes “The Beat” blog at TheNation.com.
Also: Last night’s State of the Union was a speech about Obama’s view of where jobs come from: from government help for corporations. But those corporations have not been hiring workers in the US, says HAROLD MEYERSON: he writes a column for the Washington Post op-ed page and he’s editor at large of The American Prospect.
Plus: Baby Doc is back. AMY WILENTZ returned last week from Haiti on the first anniversary of the earthquake that killed more than 300,000 people – and after the ominous return of former dictator “Baby Doc” Duvalier.
