President Obama, in his State of the Union address Tuesday, will call for new government spending on infrastructure, education and research to help boost job creation and remain competitive with other powerful nations, Fox News has confirmed.
Obama is also expected to call for some budget cuts although nothing close to the amount Republicans are demanding.
White House aides told Fox News the best preview of Obama's remarks can be found in a Dec. 6 speech he made in North Carolina where he said this is the nation's Sputnik moment. He called for more spending on American innovation and American products with the same enthusiasm that the country had right after the Russians beat the U.S. into space.
"We need to do what America has always been known for: building, innovating, educating, making things," he said in last month's speech. "We don't want to be a nation that simply buys and consumers products from other countries. We want to create and sell products all over the world that are stamped with three simple words: 'Made In America.' That's our goal."
