So, That Happened: Congress Delivered Its State Of Disarray | Jason Linkins | Posted 03.26.2015 | Politics

In last week's speech, the most newsworthy moment came when the president emphasized the importance of what he called "middle-class economics." The quick, hot take was that by doing so, Obama was opening a new round of combat with Republicans.
